Unity College hosted a Special Olympics soccer and netball tournament at our premises in Runnymead Avenue and was especially proud of our team’s determination and sportsmanship.
Every child with special needs can benefit from extra curricular activities and ideally within their own community. Through participation our athletes develop physically, lead healthier lives, meet and make friends, and grow in confidence. Sport is used to dispel long-standing myths, change negative attitudes and create new opportunities to embrace and celebrate people with intellectual disabilities.
The event was a developmental competition in line with Gauteng SOSA (Special Olympics South Africa) which is the governing body in-charge of managing sporting events through out the year.
Four teams from schools and education centers participated in this event namely the host Unity College, Logwood, Jocod and Tshegofatsong.
The participants in this event demonstrated amazing skill and talent that thrilled all who came to watch and support the athletes.
