Duinesig High School in Kuisemond Walvis Bay will make their debut season into school rugby in the under 15 and 19 rugby teams.

Retired rugby player Daniel Bock who started as a teacher at Duinesig High School in Kuisemond in the beginning of 2021 has after some of the boys at the school approached him he established the rugby teams at the school.
Mr Bock as a person who likes challenges, started immediately with about 40 under 15 and 19 boys that are eager to play rugby.
Bock said “Everywhere you go there is talent and I know that some of the under 15 boys who was at my previous school, Narraville Primary school in Narraville do have the talent to play rugby.”
“The school management and many of the parents were not against the school to start a new sport code at the school. However, there are some parents who have their doubts,” Bock said.
“Earlier this year, the school, with the help of FNB Kudus rugby club, held a successful coaching clinic with about 40 boys that are eager to play rugby” Bock added.
Bock further said that as soon as the Covid-19 regulation for contact sport is lifted they will as a school play their ever first rugby game.
The Principal of Duinesig High School Mr. Mr Stanley Uri-Khob said that he and the school management as well as the school board are happy with rugby as a sport at the school.
Uri-Khob said, “To have rugby at school is a blessing as the school boasts with national Cricket, Netball and Soccer player. We might in the future also boast with national rugby players at school.
The school principal, school management, rugby coach and players were recently surprised when community members turned up at the school with two sets of rugby jerseys for the school rugby teams.
Rugby community members, Armando Calaca, Lloyd and JR Jacobs, Dylan Theron, Leon Barnes and Ms Casey cooper donated jerseys for the under 15 team whiles Dr. Natasha Tjongarero and Dr. Happy Musweu sponsored the jerseys for the under 19 team.
We as the school would like to thank the sponsors and the rugby community for their generous donation.
