Cross Country and Athletics
Our 100-member cross country team has been the best in Mopani district for five years running, taking at least 1/3 of the medals at every LLSV meeting, with medalists in almost every age category, and in 2016 naming 41 children to the LLSV team. We have had numerous Limpopo champions, and our children regularly qualify for the South African Championships, traveling as far as Durban and Cape Town to compete. Our highest SA's cross country finish was Motsatsi Motseo, who was 9th place in 2016. We are incredibly proud of their accomplishments, effort, and great attitudes. Our athletics team has also been very successful, with our athletes winning both track and field events.

A highlight for the kids is always our concerts, which feature singing, dancing and acting. The kids work hard and display tremendous talent while having a great time. The concert we are preparing for this year is "Rescue in the Night" for October 25, 2018. After the concert, you can find a DVD of this performance for purchase at the office!
Through our outreaches into the community, we seek to not only help the people in our area, but also to instil the value of Christian leadership in our children and teach them to love others as Christ did.
Our unique equestrian programme uses horses to teach the children responsibility and agricultural skills, as well as a new skill for those learning to ride. Riding horses has been shown to have many physical, emotional, and psychological benefits for children, including improving balance, coordination, and strength, promoting confidence, self-discipline, and empathy, relieving stress, and feeling a sense of control. Riding has also been shown to benefit children with ADHD, learning disabilities, and discipline problems. We are very excited about all the ways this programme will help our children! We have four loving and patient horses an beautiful facilities for our children to learn to ride in!
2016 saw the start of Pfunanane's very successful mini hockey team, starting with our grade 1's. They did a great job, coming away from several tournaments with no goals scored against them! We hope to expand this program to the upper grades in 2017.
Our children had the great privilege of being invited to learn and compete at the Duiwelskloof Bowls Club in the first-ever schools bowls league - and we came away triumphant, winning the tournament trophy! Several of our children have continued in the sport, and have qualified for the Limpopo team to compete at the South African Bowls Championships.
