Promoting Physical Activity and School SPORT

The PasSPORT to Health Project  initiated by Prof Cheryl Walter in 2010, centres around third year Human Movement Science students who are challenged to promote physical activity, school sport and healthy active living at disadvantaged schools in the Nelson Mandela Bay area. The project forms part of experiential learning modules in recreation and sport management.


Despite the Covid19 restrictions in 2020, students were able to organize a virtual event and raise R7500 for Gelvandale Primary School. The students completed the work at the school in 2021. Caitlin Wicomb (graduate from the 2020 group) and Philani Madziba, Pumelele Majola, Mihlali Gana, Kaylan Mathews, Lutholwethu Sixolozi, and Afikile Manzi from the 2021-year group contributed to the renovation of the jungle gym at Gelvandale Primary School, as well as painted games. The students can be congratulated for their hard work, resilience and determination to see the project through, despite Covid19 challenges.

We are PROUD of you!
