Provincial Sporting Achievements

Provincial Sporting Achievements

EMC was one of seven Colleges whose sporting teams participated in the annual CASAC Provincial Games event on 26 & 27 August.

We are glad to announce that EMC teams have excelled and have achieved the following accolades:

Table tennis (males) – gold

Soccer (males)-  silver

Soccer (females) – silver

Netball – silver

The teams consisted of players from all eight EMC campuses. Although these teams did not have the chance to practice as teams prior to provincial games, they performed very well during the tournament.  A number of our students were selected to represent the province at the National Summer Games to be held in the Western Cape from 2 – 6 October 2017.  A couple of the EMC technical officials were also elected as provincial coaches and team managers.

We would like to thank all staff who have played significant roles to make it possible for the teams to participate.  A special word of thanks goes to Mr Van Heerden, our  Principal and Mr Hewana, DP Corporate Services, whose presence have encouraged the teams to excel.  Lastly we cannot neglect to thank and salute Mr Tshepo Ratsibe, EMC Sport, Arts and Culture Officer who sacrifices lots of his private time, and for always going the extra mile to ensure participation in provincial and national events.   Mr Ratsibe we salute you and our students for wearing the EMC logo with pride!  May you go from strength to strength!
