During the recent Inter-Schools Athletics meeting held at Amsterdam, a very young learner from Mkhondo House made his coaches, fellow athletes and family very proud.
Phila Mathe is an under 8 athlete and in Grade 2 at Mkhondo House. He has won three medals at this meeting: two bronze and one gold. The bronze medals were for the 70m hurdles (under 10) and 60m sprint. His gold medal was for the 80m sprint. What makes these medals even more special, is that there is no hurdles item for under 8’s. He had to take part with boys 2 years his senior. Congratulations, Phila. Eugene Nel (Director)
