Siyabonga Thwala
Newcastle High’s very own son, Siyabonga Thwala from Grade 9, was selected to compete in the athletics trials at King’s Park Stadium, Durban, on 5 March 2020. He competed in both the high jump and hurdles events and came in 3 rd place in the U16 high jump.

Of his achievement, Siyabonga said, “I once had a dream that I would be here. I didn’t ignore it. I worked hard to get where I am today.”

To aspiring athletes at school, the proud NHS student says, “Dreams are not fiction. Work on them, every day, and they will become your reality.”
