The Proprietor of Holy Cross International College (HCIC) in Yaounde, Emmanuel Buban Ngu, has announced the establishment of a sports academy within the school starting from the 2024/2025 Academic Year.
The announcement was made on December 10 during the official launch of the 2023 Proprietor’s Cup. Accompanying him were the college Mother, Head of School, and the administration.
Emmanuel Buban Ngu revealed that the sports academy would cater to students who excel in sports. A dedicated complex comprising state-of-the-art sports facilities will be constructed to provide a conducive environment for students to showcase their talents and excel in their chosen sports.
He expressed, “Those of you who excel in football, next year we will have a sports academy here, and the best students will be automatically enrolled. As the current stadium does not meet the required standards, we will be constructing a new one in the marshy area. Once everything is finalized, we will commence the construction to provide you with a stadium and other necessary facilities.”
Emmanuel Buban Ngu commended the administration and the students, and expressed his hope that they would return from the holidays with fresh ideas. He encouraged them to share the core values of the school with their families and friends, aiming to make Holy Cross International College a destination for all.
The opening ceremony featured an inaugural basketball match between the National Section and the Cambridge International Section. A total of 10 teams in football, handball, and basketball disciplines are participating in the competition, which is expected to conclude on December 13.
