Mr Tony Nyatlo, the Marketing Director of Gozone Water, said he was motivated to host the spelling contents in Hammanskraal to help children to improve their vocabulary.

“I was born and raised here in Hammanskraal and this is the first competition that we are hosting this year, and if things go according to our plan it could be an annual thing.

“I have been in education for 29 years and retired in 2013. There is a say that says once a teacher always a teacher,” said Mr Nyatlo.

He said this was also a way to give back the blessing from God by giving back to the community.

One of the first position winners, Ms Ning Mohale, said she feels blessed and honored. “To have shared this position with my friend Karabo Mmotlana, shows that the hard work we have put in practicing difficult words has paid off.
