SASFA : ARE-FADIMEHENG SECONDARY SCHOOL WINS THE COPA COCA-COLA® NORTH WEST PROVINCIAL FINALS
Are-Fadimeheng Secondary School from Dr Kenneth Kauda District are the new COPA Coca-Cola® North West champions.
The school won the provincial finals tournament hosted by Coca-Cola, in conjunction with the South African Schools Football Association (SASFA), held at Montshiwa Stadium after beating Rustenburg Educational College in the final.
COPA Coca-Cola® is a global football development initiative that gives millions of young football fans the opportunity to come together and celebrate their passion for football.
As part and parcel of this initiative, the Which Part Will You Play search is once again on, with Coca-Cola looking out for exceptional young players to join the Which Part Will You Play all-star team. Players embodying and representing the dynamic and unique roles needed to make up a successful team will be selected for the side and act as personifications of the values COPA Coca-Cola® aims to instill in its young participants.
This week, Oarabile Moshweu from Tshwaraganelo Primary School was selected to join the Which Part Will You Play all-stars team after being identified as The Rebel. Moshweu was chosen after being seen as an underrated hard tackling defender who will produce great performance at whatever cost. Off the field he also looks at the world differently, he encourages others to break free of what’s expected of them.
“Thank you to Coca-Cola for this tournament, we are given a platform to reach our dreams. Thank you to Simba for his words of encouragement, even though our team did not win, I am happy that I will be able to represent my school at the National Finals.”
In addition to the Which Part Will You Play all-stars, COPA Coca-Cola® will be picking one individual in each province who has shown the part they are playing in the development of young footballers. Each of these individuals will be recognized with the title of ‘the Mentor’ and rewarded by Coca-Cola for the contribution they are making to the development of South Africa’s youth.
Ms. Veronica Maseko has been named as ‘the Mentor’ in North West. Maseko was selected in recognition of being an individual who has been through thick and thin with the School where she teaches. She portrays a motherly love to everyone within the school as well as the community.
“It feels good to be given recognition, especially during woman’s month. I will continue to take care of my students and the community at large” said Maseko.
