Get re­a­dy for lo­ads of fun

Mossel Bay Advertiser - - Art & Entertainment -

"S­port helps young pe­op­le to de­ve­lop phy­si­cal skills, ma­ke friends, im­pro­ve their self es­teem, and im­pro­ve com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on and a­ca­de­mic a­bi­li­ty. So­me e­vi­den­ce sug­ge­sts that young­sters who par­ti­ci­pa­te in s­port are less li­ke­ly to drop out of s­chool."

This is a quo­te by an unkno­wn per­son, but it seems to ring true.

Mos­sel Bay Mu­ni­ci­pa­li­ty, in col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with the Gar­den Rou­te Ca­si­no Com­mu­ni­ty Trust and ot­her sta­ke­hol­ders, will be pre­sen­ting the an­nu­al Be­ach S­port Pro­gram­me from 5 to 21 De­cem­ber at San­tos Be­ach from 10:30 to 17:00 dai­ly (ex­clu­ding wee­kends).

The main go­al is to en­coura­ge the youth to get in­vol­ved in s­port and re­frain from so­ci­al ills plag­uing our com­mu­ni­ties, as well as to pro­mo­te so­ci­al u­plift­ment through our youth and com­mu­ni­ties.
