New chapter kicks off for St Mary’s

The under-12 soccer team at St Marys Primary School in Retreat received their first soccer kits on Friday May 24.

The under-12 soccer team at St Mary’s Primary School in Retreat have new soccer kit thanks to six Dutch students.

The students have been working with the children as part of a three-month early childhood development internship at the College of Cape Town.

The students said they would miss the hugs from the children during their time in the country.

Theo Brauns, a soccer coach and teacher at St Mary’s, thanked the students during the handover of the kit last Friday.

“Your initiative is in harmony with the African proverb: It takes a village to raise a child. Our children love being part of a team, and the soccer kit is one way to encourage this.”

His words were echoed by one of the children who shouted, “We can’t wait for our next game!”
