The JVW Schools League Awards 2016 was nothing short of an inspirational evening for all who were present.
Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls graced the audience with a spectacular opening of the National Anthem and a spiritually-uplifting closing songs.
The night wouldn’t be completed with the presence of the Banyana Banyana players, Linda Motlhalo, Yolula Tsawe, Nompumelelo Nyandeni and the Captain herself and JVW founder, Janine van Wyk.
It was a great night for the award winners and runners-up of the overall league.

The night wouldn’t have been possible without the assistance from Ekurhuleni Sports and Recreation, who have been working with the program for the past 5 years, as well as Lizah Rubisane who devoted a big portion of her time and effort to make sure the night had all that it needed to run smoothly.
Lastly, a big thank you goes out to all the school teams, players, parents and coaches who made the league a success and a competitive one to help grow the sport we all love. We look forward to a bigger and better 2017 Season!
