Glenstantia Primary on three country tour of South America

VISIT OF SA SCHOOL TO HISTORIC URUGUAYAN NATIONAL FOOTBALL MUSEUM

Mr Hendrik Pretorius, Headmaster, Ms Agnes Shongwe, teacher and Ambassador Dawie Jacobs, Charge D’Affaires.
The Glenstantia primary school of Pretoria, currently on a three-country tour in South America, was welcomed to Uruguay during a small ceremony at the historic and world class Uruguayan National Football Museum in Montevideo. The school will be playing two soccer matches against local schools in Punta del Este and Montevideo.

The tour group was excited to be “received” by Zakumi, donated by the Embassy to the Museum last year, and who has since become one of the main attractions at the museum, both for local visitors as well as tourists from other countries. The Embassy hosted a small reception for the group and officials of the museum who described the museum as “a home to all South Africans”.

The museum is situated in the Centenary Stadium where the First FIFA World Cup, won by the Uruguayan hosts,  took place in 1930. The group was treated on short films of the first ever World Cup and of the 2010 World Cup in SA. They then had a tour of the impressive museum and the soccer field itself, where Uruguay will also be playing their first qualifying match for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

The visit to this historic museum of which the FIFA World Cup in SA has now become a prominent feature, was a truly memorable experience for the teachers, accompanying parents and the children.
