Buco Desert Sport Festival

Rudi Bowe

The 6th annual BUCO Desert Sport Festival hosted by Walvis Bay Private High School at the sport fields of the school in Walvis Bay was an immense achievement.

Over 650 athletes participated in the 6th annual BUCO Desert Sport Festival hosted by Walvis Bay Private High School in Walvis Bay.
With over 650 athletes from nine Namibian and eight South African schools participated in Rugby, Netball and Hockey sport codes. The festival was also blessed with the presence of South African Rugby Legends Danie van Schalkwyk, Francois Bonthuys, Chester William and Stefan Terblanche.
The biggest reason that the Walvis Bay Private High School hosted the festival is to bring young sport men and women to unite in sport. Sport makes you strong and healthy and help with the development for the future.
Team sport teaches you to build character and to work together and to accept defeat and celebrate victory. To be a successful sport man and woman you need to be disciplined.
South Africa Legend Stefan Terblanche said I have been all over the world and Namibia absolutely blew me away. The beauty of the country and especially the people and the manner and discipline of the athletes”
The legends said that Namibia has a lot of rugby talent that just needs to be developed and that the Namibian Rugby Union and every one that helps with the development of the young rugby players need to take good care of them as the youth is the future of the country.
The rugby legends trained rugby players from De Duine Secondary School, Walvis Bay Private High School (WBPHS) and Private School Moria that participating in the 2019 BUCO Sport Festival.
