Vusi joins us from Monument Primary School on the West Rand.
Being awarded a TAG Foundation scholarship is important to him as he says it has given him the opportunity to attend a “prestigious English school.”
He has found high school quite different to primary school. There is a lot more homework and the teachers are strict. He knows it is going to be hard work, but he is looking forward to it. He is enjoying the hostel and has made many friends and has already had some good times with them. He says the boys are very well looked after.
He is in the D cricket team now and enjoying it, but he cannot wait for rugby season to start. His dream is to make the Grant Khomo team and then the Reds and the Craven Week and he thinks he can do it. Vusi was named player of the tournament at the King Edward VII Festival last year and he represented the Golden Lions at the under-13 Craven Week for two years in a row.
Vusi is delighted to attend a school that so many sporting greats have attended before him and he hopes being at King Edward VII School will help him to achieve his dream of becoming a professional player one day.
