…let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus…
Athletics and physical education are an integral part of the life of Discovery School students. We are committed to competition that is consistent with the biblical and educational goals of teamwork, servant leadership, sportsmanship, discipline and determination. Discovery School celebrates the Christ-like virtues that competition can instill, such as selflessness, sacrifice, servant leadership, teamwork, and perseverance. Discovery School recognizes that success in these areas will ultimately produce godly results.
ABOUT COACH ALOYS
My name is NAGIMANA Aloys
ABOUT COACH ENOCK
My name is BWENGENUGUSENGA Enock. I help students with sports at the Discovery School. I was born 15th June, 1994 in Bujumbura. Since I was a small boy, I have loved football. When I was 10 years old, my parents registered me in a football school called “Nile Olympic School” because they saw in me a talent for football. Later, when I was 17, I was chosen to play in the 2nd division. It was my first time to plan in the national Stadium and God helped me. I was proclaimed to be the best in making many goals, 12 goals. Then I was selected to be on the under 18 national team and we went to play in Kenya for the east African competition and we won and got a CUP for the country!
Throughout my studies my school used me in different inter-school competitions, and my school won many times. I used to go to Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and Kenya to play in tournaments, and I even stayed a while in Kenya and was invited to try out for a first division team, Nairobi City Star, but I needed to go home to my own country. Now, I have another team in Burundi’s 1st division which is called “Inter Star”.
SCHOOL SOCCER TOURNAMENTS
Students are having a class vs. class soccer tournament once a trimester, complete with trophies for the winners of both the boys' and girls' brackets.
MARCH 2015 SOCCER CAMP
A team from Forest Hill Church came in March of 2015 and organized a Soccer Camp for the students and the teachers of Discovery School. The main goals for the camp were to encourage sportsmanship and to teach the importance of physical fitness. The P4 through P6 students particapiated in the camp. They were taught the basics of soccer and by the end of the week, a boy's and girl's soccer team was started by Enock Bwenge. Charlotte Christian School in Charlotte NC were huge supporters of the camp, in partnership with Forest Hill Church. They sent a donation of old soccer uniforms that were instrumential in helping with the start of the new teams.
