Ramiah also had the honour of carrying the South African flag on stage at the opening ceremony with representatives from the participating countries. The young lad is very grateful to his teachers.

“Mr Bayjev believed in me and I am thankful to him for his guidance. This achievement has proved to me that hard work, dedication and sacrifice will be rewarded, maybe not immediately but the rewards will surely come. Having a deep sense of spirituality has also helped me in my studies,” he said.
