iKhwezi Opening at Thomas More College

Thomas More College hosted the official opening of the iKhwezi Sports Centre. The opening commenced with two indoor hockey matches played, 1st Boys’ vs Staff and 1st Girls’ vs Staff. Both matches displayed great skill and enthusiasm. The matches were followed by the formal proceeding of the centre being opened whereby Mrs Deni Hornsey, recently retired Foundation Phase Headmistress, unveiled the commemorative plaque which will be mounted at the entrance to the iKhwezi Sports Centre. Mrs Hornsey joined Thomas More College in 1994 and served as the Headmistress of the Foundation Phase for 18 years. Mrs Hornsey played an instrumental part in the expansion and development of our beautiful school grounds and had part in the decision making of this extraordinary facility.

It was only fitting that they asked their current longest standing staff member (29 year’s service), Ms Carol Mbili, to cut the ribbon and officiate the opening of the centre. The newly built multi-purpose centre is one that Thomas More College can be truly proud to display. The iKhwezi Sports Centre currently incorporates a full-size indoor hockey pitch, change rooms, spectator’s ablutions, a wheelchair friendly ablution, grandstands (250 seats), storage facilities, a catering station and additional parking bays, with plans to include one netball court, two cricket nets and basketball.

Mr Wiggett, concluded the opening by saying “It is quite fitting, then, that this magnificent centre is being christened The iKhwezi Sports Centre. iKhwezi is, in our region’s lingua franca, the morning star, the guide to lost and weary travellers, the herald of a new day and fresh beginnings. It is constant, it is dependable, it is trustworthy and it is honest in its purpose.”
