Sport to learners has a more positive impact than any other programmes that have been tried and tested at schools. Schools are now making school sports compulsory, employing coaches or encouraging teachers to fill this role. The Future Factory has done this for more than 22 years, and the coaches have received an income, but not nearly enough, and due to lack of sponsorship, it cannot pay the sports coach a salary and employ them full time.
A part time coach employed at the school has made so many inroads to the curriculum, as learners are more aware and their attention levels have improved during lesson times. Other activities include Surf Walks, Athletics, Concerts, Food Fair, Big Walk and Inter-school programmes.
The Future Factory embraces all the Olympic sport codes thus giving a variety of choices for the Youth for them to be developed. Also, if you start with an Early Childhood Development, Motor co-ordination skills and making play fun, children tend to grow faster, and at this age, the wellbeing of the child is of utmost importance.
