Girls Prep  October 10, 2019 | Academics | Kerryn Schmidt

Here’s a short story about three young girls who showed tremendous resilience and grit.

Once upon a time there was a newly established robotics club and a bunch of very enthusiastic girls. They entered the serious World Robots Olympiad and this team of three young, determined ladies were placed third in their division. They worked all holiday in hopes of getting to the nationals, but got the news that they had been pipped at the post and were ranked twentieth and only the top 18 teams were to advance through to nationals. Fate smiled down on our intrepid three however and two teams dropped out of the nationals. So our band of three were suddenly headed for rAge at the Dome!

Mandela Day is an annual international day in honour of Nelson Mandela, celebrated each year on 18 July, Mandela’s birthday. People are encouraged to take 67 minutes of their day to fight for social justice. This year, on 22 July, our St Peters Prep Community, which included our parents, children, teachers, interns and maintenance staff, decided to embark on a project to upgrade our outreach school, Sefikeng Primary School. Our community volunteered 2 hours of their time and donated money and goods that were needed for this project. Some of our projects included painting fences and jungle gyms, cleaning classrooms and classroom equipment, gardening and creating a welcoming staffroom.

Madiba’s spirit was alive on Saturday, when over 250 St Peter’s families and staff joined their Sefikeng counterparts to give their 67 minutes.

The overwhelming sense of community that prevailed was palpable - passion, care and enthusiasm abounded.
