Impact in Partner Schools

By Spakes Xapile | General Manager

Since its establishment in 2005, United Through Sport has become an integral part of Gqeberha’s most under served communities. In 2023, we celebrated nearly two decades since the inception of our flagship programme, Keep Active, at our longstanding partner schools - Astra Primary and Isaac Booi Primary.

Today, we remain an integral part of the schools’ educational framework and offer a variety of programmes and services. This aligns with our commitment to providing comprehensive and meaningful engagement opportunities that offer all learners the chance to partake in our programmes while addressing the needs of their developmental stage. These initiatives seamlessly integrate into the curriculum, enhancing the educational journey of every participant.

In 2012, we launched our Girls and Boys Unite clubs at Astra Primary and Isaac Booi, serving as host sites for the programme. Today, both schools also host our gardening and recycling projects, contributing to the school feeding scheme to ensure that every child receives nourishment for both body and mind. Through collaboration with school leadership, we have invested in transformative infrastructure projects. At Astra Primary, the establishment of a library, literacy centre, hockey turf, and multipurpose court has transformed the school’s environment, fostering physical and academic growth. Similarly, at Isaac Booi Primary, our contributions, including literacy centres, library facilities, a computer room, two prefab classrooms, cricket nets and a multipurpose court empower students along their journey to success through sport.

Together, these initiatives reflect our shared dedication to nurturing thriving communities and empowering the next generation. 

"The investement made by United Through Sport over the past 15 years in our school has had amazing impact.  They have invested in facilities and infrastructure, staff training and direct programmes for learners.  As a result we are seeing higher levels of future success across the board from our students" Helma Boggenpoel, Principal of Astra Primary School
