Ompundja shines at Sanlam teachers tournament

RUNDU - The Sanlam Kavango East Teachers Tournament concluded at the Rundu Sports Stadium on Sunday, with the Ompundja circuit of the Oshana region winning the football category.

Outapi Circuit of the Omusati region defended their title in netball, while Rundu Circuit of the Kavango East region won the volleyball category for the second consecutive year.

The tournament, which kicked off on Thursday, brought together teachers from seven regions, namely Kavango East and West, Oshana, Oshikoto, Ohangwena, Zambezi, and Omusati, to compete for top honours in football, netball, and volleyball.

Ompundja walked away with N$9 000, a floating trophy, and gold medals in the football category, while Outapi Circuit received N$5 000, a trophy, and gold medals for winning the netball category.

The Rundu circuit, which won the volleyball category, walked away with N$4,000, a trophy, and gold medals.

Sanlam sponsored the tournament to the tune of N$100 000.

Last year, Outapi Circuit won the football and netball categories.

Chairperson of the organising committee of the event, Chester Mutangara, said he was satisfied; the tournament was a success, and they achieved what they hoped for—bringing all seven regions in the country together.

“The main purpose of the tournament is to bring teachers together in order to know each other and share their common goals,” he said.

Sanlam marketing and communications manager Laurencia Prizonsky echoed the same sentiments, saying the tournament was a success and brought together more people than she expected in just three days.

“It was good to see teachers excited as well as the learners to see them run around the field. Sanlam likes to be involved in community development and upliftment,” she said.

Prizonsky said the tournament gave the teachers time to also focus on themselves and their mental health in order to push that health through to their learners. - Nampa
