A Great Happening in Keimoes
On the 6th of June 2019 one thousand Under-9 Get Into Rugby participants, from the Orange District region in the Northern Cape, took part in a festival at High School Keimoes. The excitement was plain to see on the faces of both the participants and officials.
The festival opened with a word of welcome from the headmaster of Keimoes High School followed by a word of thanks from Mr Gerald Beukes from the Department Sports and Recreation.
The teams played non-contact Sevens and comprised of both boys and girls.
Bokkie and the Oros Man (Spar Keimoes’s mascot) proved to be very popular.
The Springbok players Lood de Jager and Jessie Kriel attended the festival much to the delight of the teachers, officials and participants alike.
The success of the day was clearly apparent in the laughter, smiles and energy generated by all in attendance.
#LoveRugby was very evident in Keimoes.
Our thanks goes to Spar Keimoes for their support as well as to all the teachers and coaches that worked tirelessly in preparation for the festival. As a partner of Get Into Rugby we would like to thank Engen for their backing and for making the dreams of many young rugby fans a reality.
