Power Plate Legacy Project
extends into KZN Midlands
Howick - Following two donations on the KZN North Coast and
Newcastle, the Power Plate Legacy Project along with the Prime
Sports Development Trust, Virgin Active South Africa and the KZN
Department of Sport and Recreation have rolled out two more
Power Plate machines at Howick High School.
Jay Mannikam, the Deputy Manager at the KwaZulu-Natal Department
of Sport and Recreation, praised the work that has been done by
Power Plate and the Prime Trust but most importantly for Howick
High School for putting up their hands to be a Sports Focus
"When these opportunities come about we want schools to jump at
the opportunity and that is what Howick High School has done,"
Mannikam said. "We have many Sports Focus Schools in the
province but it is great for a school like Howick High to be
given the chance to push their athletes to that next level.
"We want to see pupils from Howick pushing for even higher
Howick High School Principal Mrs Lauren Farquharson echoed the
sentiments of Mannikam but added that the passion of the people
involved in the Power Plate Legacy Project is unrivalled.
"We are incredibly grateful to the Department of Sport and
Recreation for acknowledging us as a Sports Focus School as well
as to Brendon and the team at Prime, Power Plate and Virgin
Active," she said. "To see people with such drive and positive
energy is inspiring.
"This drives us here at Howick high to push for positive results
and we want our athletes to have that same passion and drive."
Having been to two locations previously, Brendon Goodenough, who
represents the Prime Trust, is hoping that by helping to uplift
sport at Howick High School some of these pupils could feed into
the elite athlete system.
“Public schools like Howick have an important role
to play in sports transformation and in the generation of
sporting role models for the youth.”
“The Prime Trust and Power Plate wanted to do more for sports
development in KwaZulu-Natal and with R1 million worth of
equipment to donate we are heading in the right direction.”
