Fun exercises for Delta Park School

Raphael Courtenay, in Grade 1 at Delta Park School, competes in the exercises.

Delta Park School was one of the lucky ones chosen to participate in the Gauteng Active Education (GAE) Soccer World Cup challenge.

Representing Croatia, the Grade 1 children competed in a soccer skills challenge and each completed exercise which earned their school points. There are 32 other schools taking part in the challenge throughout the province and the school with the most points will be rewarded.

Marlon Lewis is excited to compete in one of the exercises.

 

Coach Bongani Khanyile said the challenge to engage the younger children in the Soccer World Cup. “We always focus on the older children but now we are focusing on Grade 1 children.

 

Kopano Phahla runs with the ball as coach Bongani Khanyile keeps an eye on him.

“We had five different exercises that our coaches conduct and different schools. Skill one was dribbling, then skipping, then under and over, running then catching and passing. These [help with] motor skills and hand-eye coordination.”

Delta Park School Grade 1, Junior Myeni, performs on of the exercises.
