Master students of the University of Basel, Switzerland, at the Nelson Mandela University, South Africa


As part of the KaziBantu project, Basel Master students Lize van der Walt, Melanie Glover, Chantal Brügger, Nicola Hausner and Roman Aebischer spent four weeks at the Department of Human Movement Science at the Nelson Mandela University in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Following their active participation in the DASH symposium, they worked closely with their South African colleagues to develop a sports and moving-to-music teaching resource that is also part of their master’s theses. At the same time, they tested the ‘toolkit’ for applicability in underprivileged primary schools in nearby townships. For the Master students, the stay was an impressive and formative experience. The photo shows the students together with primary teachers of the project school shortly before their leave in Port Elizabeth (in the photo Chantal Brügger is missing).
