On Friday, February 23, a team of 16 learners, 8 boys and 8 girls represented LMS in a friendly tournament at Hoërskool Riebeeckrand in Randfontein.
Despite undergoing minimal training by their instructor, Br Ahmed Moosa, a professional coach employed by the school, each of the learners produced exceptional results.
The competition was over distances of 10m and 15m. The rivalry was intense as most of the archers hit the required targets. At the end of each stage, scorecards were tallied and the eventual winner was announced. Bibi Ayesha Patel received a gold medal in her category. All the learners received medals for their outstanding performance.
“Well done to all our learners who participated in the tournament, you have made LMS proud.
“May this sport be a means of inculcating a great love for the Sunnah of our Nabi (SAW) and may our Archery team continue to grow from strength to strength. Ameen,” said the Lenasia Muslim School in a statement.a
