Namibia: Organisers Happy With Outcome of Sport Festival

The organisers and sponsors of the fifth edition of the Janine and Suzelle Davin Trust FNB Windhoek High School Sport Festival have expressed their delight with the success of the festival which saw leading schools from Namibia, Zimbabwe and South Africa battle it out for honours in rugby, netball, hockey and tennis at the WHS FNB Stadium.

Herman Davin, Trustee of the Davin Trust said: "Since the inaugural ceremony in 2008, the Janine and Suzelle Davin Sport Trust has gone from strength to strength, assisting increasingly more Namibian sportsmen and women to partake in sport and reaching their goals in their respective fields."

The festival was held for the first time in 2007 and quickly caught the imagination as top rugby schools like Grey College, Paul Roos and Paarl Boys High from South Africa and Hastings from New Zealand competed against local schools like the hosts WHS, HTS and Elnatan.

FNB as the main sponsor, was also delighted with the professional and well executed sports festival.

Dawn Humphries, communications manager FNB said they are proud of the trust's achievement. She said the tournament has boosted school sports not only in Namibia but other countries as well. She applauded organisers for an even bigger and better tournament.
