A few weeks ago, we heard from Ostrich, CAST’s Sport & Youth Development Intern in Appelsbosch. Since that last update, the outside painting of Appelsbosch Baptist Church has been finished, and the connecting CAST Community Centre Office has been completed as well. Appelsbosch community members now have a formal place to go to access CAST services.
In regards to Youth Development in this community, Ostrich organised 38 children from Noodsberg Primary School for a development rugby team. For the older guys, Ostrich has put together a district team for 23 players from Appelsbosch, Noodsberg, and Chibini. They recently played in a local tournament and won.
During the school holidays, the Vikings Rugby Academy from Norwegian Settlers Church will be doing a coaching clinic for the rugby teams in Appelsbosch.
In our other rural communities, Noodsberg Baptist Church and Chibini Baptist Church will be hosting a Fun Run/Walk this weekend. There will be a 5K Walk and Run, as well as 10K and 20K Runs. Medals will be awarded for winners.
