    The prizes were handed over by the DA and all schools that took part in the games received consolation prizes which included stationery and t-shirts from the sponsors.

    "I would like to thank the sponsors  and the support we are getting from all schools, this year's games have seen an improvement as there has been more competition and I am really excited about that, I am happy that the games continue to played in a Christian spirit with love being our main theme" Vhengere said.
