Speech: Minister - Beyond Sport Summint and Awards - 7 Dec 2011

Distinguished Guests, South Africa leverages on sport and recreation to contribute into the fight against poverty, underdevelopment and ignorance. We strongly believe on encouraging healthy lifestyles by significantly enhancing the quality of life of all our people. We use play, leisure, fitness, physical education, schools sport and community sport to mold the physical culture and nature of our nation based on the agenda of advancing sustainable development in different sectors of our society. In this context we would like to call upon all members of the Beyond Sport to join hands with us in the Schools Sport programme roll-out plan to make all our schools in South Africa to be incubators and nurseries for sport development and talent identification. We want to use schools sport as a platform to encourage social integration and integrated social inclusion.
