The Association of Non-Aligned teachers ‘Unions of Southern Africa (ANTUSA)’s annual Sports and Cultural Exchange programme was held on the 29th March to 1st April 2018, marking the 11th edition of the annual ANTUSA games. The two day's event was been celebrated under the theme "Lay the ground beyond Sports & Culture".
Teachers from ANTUSA Unions in the SADC region namely: BETUZ(Zambia), BOSETU(Bostwana), PEU(RSA), PTUZ(Zimbabwe), LTTU (Lesotho), TUN(Namibia) and UPSEE(Mauritius) showcased their talents in different sporting spheres such as Soccer, Netball, Volleyball and other related cultural events including traditional dances, poem and debate sessions.
This year's edition was hosted by Namibia in its beautiful town of Swakopmund, a city located on the seashores of the Namibia on the Antlantic ocean. The annual sports fest was attended by over 1800 teachers from across the region.
Among the attendees were Swakopmund Town Council Officials, A Representative from the Zambian Embassy in Namibia, ANTUSA Executive Committee Members, Officials from TUN, Leadership and members from all participating unions. The two day's event was been celebrated under the theme "Lay the ground beyond Sports & Culture".
ANTUSA President, Mr explained the theme as one that is meant to foster for growth in the union. It is a theme which will help us as SADC African teachers know how to better tackle rising issues beyond sports and culture and will include early child marriages and sex education among the learners in schools. Without this knowledge, we believe it will be difficult to see a new generation that will be responsible in our respective African countries. [Click here to watch the video]
The union has continued to provide a platform from which other teachers from different countries learn on best practices on how to deliver to their learners.
The next ANTUSA festival will be held in Lesotho in 2019, hosted by Lesotho Teachers Trade Union.
