“Necessary documents include the school’s registration forms and the teams list,” said Tshabalala.
“Educators have the awesome responsi-bility of providing opportunities and experiences that will help young people to develop their personality and character, and school sport is an acceptable medium to do this,” he said.
In 2017 more than 2 700 schools; rural, farm schools and private institutions; registered for the South African leg of the Danone Nations Cup. Sekusile Primary School from Nkomazi Local Municipality went to the finals last year. They lost the game to Mophela Primary from KwaZulu-Natal, which went on to win the Danone National finals.
