Ar­bore­tum Pri­mary School learner Mo­ham­mad Thaqwa Sab­jee is a young man of many tal­ents with a unique ar­ray of spe­cial hob­bies and in­ter­ests.

Robotics, pro­gram­ming, science and sports fea­ture at the top of his list of ac­tiv­i­ties.

The Grade 7 young­ster par­tic­i­pated in the Lego Ro­botic League over the week­end in Dur­ban and to­gether with his team, Space Sharks won the KZN Cham­pi­onship leg.

They will rep­re­sent KZN at the Na­tional Com­pe­ti­tion in Jo­han­nes­burg in Novem­ber.

Two weeks ago he par­tic­i­pated in the In­ter­na­tional Eskom Expo Science Fair where he re­ceived a gold medal and cat­e­gory tro­phy award in Agri­cul­tural Sci­ences.

The 13-year old also won the spe­cial award for the Best Soil Science Project which he re­ceived from the South African Soil As­so­ci­a­tion for his project on ‘Fu­ture Farm­ing’.

Mo­ham­mad is a true all-rounder and is the school’s head boy and in the Top 10 aca­demic achiev­ers in his grade.

In­volved in mul­ti­ple sports he plays first team cricket, hockey and soc­cer.

He re­ceived KZN North­ern Coastal colours for hockey.

Swim­ming is on his sport itin­er­ary as well and he par­tic­i­pates in in­ter-school galas and is in­volved in the school’s en­tre­pre­neur club.

Also with a vo­cal flair, Mo­ham­mad was placed in the Top 5 in KZN for ATKV Afrikaans Ora­tors and sec­ond po­si­tion in the in­ter-schools English Ora­tors.

In the Astro Quiz he ex­celled and in the Zu­l­u­land Eisteddfod he re­ceived A+++ (triple plus) for his poem recita­tion.

The ded­i­cated and hard­work­ing pupil has a full list of sport and aca­demic ac­tiv­i­ties but en­sures he makes time for his hob­bies which are deep sea fish­ing and hunt­ing.

He would like to spend the next two years mem­o­ris­ing the Holy Book, the Qu­raan and con­tinue fo­cus­ing on his school­ing.
