Mwawi Kumwenda on Thursday shared her netball experience with pupils at Lulindo Primary School in Malawiâ€™s northern town of Karonga where she held a day-long netball coaching clinic.
Apart from imparting her netball wealth to the pupils, the Peninsula Waves goal-attacker also donated balls and uniforms to the schools where the girls came from.
In an interview, Lulindo Primary School head teacher, Robson Kondowe, said with the new skills gained, his school is ready to clinch honours in competitions.
â€œIt has been a worthwhile day. From what I have seen, I think with this new knowledge we are going to stake our position in the Malawi Schools Sports Association (Massa) tournament. She has also left us with training manuals which the sports teachers will use,â€ said Kondowe.
He said pupils aged between nine and 14 years benefited from the clinic while many other young girls from the surrounding areas came to Lulindo to see Mwawi.
â€œSome children from surrounding communities also benefited in a way. I will be failing my duty if I do not thank her for the uniforms and also the Frooty Juice and biscuits she shared with the pupils,â€ said Kondowe.
Mwawi thanked Universal Industries for making it possible for her to share her experience with the youngsters.
â€œIt was a pleasure working with them. I was impressed because they already have a gist of what netball is all about. That made my job easier,â€ she said.
