Conclusion l.jpg
Conclusion

  • It is our responsibility as a nation to ensure that we raise boys and girls who are educated and disciplined. These are our future leaders! We would have failed them if we cannot create an environment that encourages them to be the best they can be in both sport and education, no matter where they come from, no matter the colour of their skin.

  • I trust that we will find remedies to the challenges faced by sport that will not only benefit Gautengas a provincial but South Africa as a whole. I hope that the issues addressed in this seminar in the next two days do not just remain within the walls of the CSIR but that action is taken and we implement what has been discussed going forward.
