Siphosethu Mnebelele attended Fochville Primary School and first got to know about King Edward VII School when he played rugby for the Invitation XV at the Easter Festival last year. Siphosethu was selected for the Golden Lions at the under-13 Craven Week.
Siphosethu has been living with his aunt since his mother passed away. He said being awarded a TAG Foundation scholarship means a great deal to him as he can now receive a good education, improve on his rugby skills and hopefully go to university one day. His dream is to become a professional rugby player.
He is enjoying life in the hostel so far and says a lot is being done to make the new boys feel welcome. He commented that there is no bullying or initiation at KES and the boys are encouraged to become part of the school brotherhood. He is enjoying the school spirit and feels very motivated by it.
