The presentation of the rugby kits to the Prince Xulu Rugby Academy took place in Durban, KZN.
The Academy has a MOU with the Bretttonwood High School whereby the Academy uses the sports facilities of the (previously Model C) School and provides rugby training for the students from the School and a few other neighbouring schools.
Both the School and the Academy were highly appreciative of the donation.
There was briefing session with Mr Xulu regarding the history of the academy. He stated the objective was to take rugby to the disadvantaged areas. He also stated that the Academy is the only one its kind in KZN.
Awqaf might use this unique opportunity by using the platform of sport to build social cohesion and inspire student to pursue Rugby as a constructive past time which could develop into a career in Sport.
