Nail Biter at the Mitre

ODs, parents, friends and children filled the room!

It was spectacular! The Mitre was full!

The children sat in front exhorting their team to victory!

Some of them could not hold back their tears as the match started coming to a close. Others’ jubilation was amazing to see. Young people enamoured by great sport!

The Big Screen with the surrounding Bose speakers made it feel as if you were there - a really high quality transmission of the game.

Most of all,  it was the amazing spirit that reigned - towards the end and before the final whistle, proud South Africans rose and started singing the National Anthem.

An astonishing event - a memorable occasion.
