Merensky High School congratulates Matthew van der Merwe and Hlulani Ngobeni (grade 9) on completing their bronze Presidential Awards.
To achieve this, they had to deliver 24-hour community service over 3 months, participate in a sport and new skill for 3 or 6 months, and complete a 24km hike stretching over 2 days. These two also had to compile a journal according to which all activities were evaluated. Learners must be 14 years of age to register and spend a minimum of 6 months on the bronze level.
Matthew and Hlulani are now aiming to complete the silver award requirements within the next year.
Another 51 Plasie learners are currently working on this prestigious award: 7 gold, 17 silver and 27 bronze.
