6 July 2013 - Rotary Club Camp Adventure into Citizenship
The Rotary Club Cape Town took 42 grade 11 and 12 learners for a city trip this year. The aim was to teach them about building themselves and influencing their community in a positive way in order to foster the creation of capable leaders who are motivated to forge a brighter future. Learners from all over South Africa attended, including several learners from less privileged communities. Four Born in Africa learners, namely Elize Malgas, Jonelle Hendrickse, Katleho Modise and Marcellino Ruiters, were fortunate enough to attend. Some of the places they visited include Parliament, museums in Cape Town, the Open Door Abuse Centre, the Green Shack project and the Science centre. There were also many other social activities included. All the learners who went could not stop talking about their unforgettable, life-changing adventure. A huge thank you to BIA godparents for their contribution as well as to the members of Orde van St Jan van Jerusalem (Hospitaalridders) for helping to make it happen.
