“This is a very big year for us at this school,” said BPS academics head of department Arina Botes. “We are celebrating our 70th jubilee, and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than with the unveiling of our multi-surface field: the Morne Marx Sports Arena.”

“We’re a school that never stops,” said BPS principal Morne Marx, thanking all the stakeholders for their contributions towards making the arena a reality for the school and surrounding community. “Schools are not isolated; we all fight the same battles. I believe that it’s important to have representatives from other schools here tonight. Thank you very much for joining us here.”

GED district director Shirley Molobi praised the multi-service field as a remarkable facility which stands as a testimony to the school’s commitment to sports, and physical fitness.
