2015 TSMFL West Rand Teachers Awards

Tsogo Sun Moves for Life held the 2015 West Rand Teacher Awards Ceremony at Tsogo Sun Silverstar Casino on 20/10/2015.


Mr. Supercharge giving a powerful message of taking charge of your life.

The event aimed at honouring the TSMFL teachers of the following schools for their dedication, passion and hard work, contributing to the success of the in-class Chess Programme:

Mashudu Primary

Avante Primary

FJL Wells Primary

Nooitgedacht 88

Mohlakano Primary

Krugersdorp Town School

Paardekraal Primary

Hartzstraat Primary

Boipelo Intermediate

Randfontein Primary

Mr. TJ Malamule (a.k.a Mr. Supercharge) from TJ Talk International was Guest Speaker at the function. His message of ‘Taking control of your life by making wise choices and handling tough situations’ made a significant impact on the audience.

A Teacher’s Tournament including various MiniChess® games like Pawn Soccer and Knights’ Tour formed part of the event. Amidst cheering, laughter, encouragements and welcome (and sometimes unwelcome!) advice from the side lines, the TSMFL West Rand schools were in a heated competition to show off their chess knowledge and prowess, all in the name of fun and good sportsmanship!
