Rotarian Richard Saxby reports: Yesterday I attended Day 3 of their holiday programme where ‘Life Skills’ was the theme.

They spent the first session playing Team Building Games. Their participation was enthusiastic with the teamwork results forthcoming.

Then an Architectural company presented how careers in their discipline would provide an exciting career.

I then spoke on lessons learned in my life as a Civil Engineer and ending as the Chief Executive.

Basically explaining the importance of self discipline, projecting a positive approach, demonstrating positive energy creation to ones team.

‘Accountability & Responsibility’    I used a powerful quotation from Nelson Mandela. 

How all of these together with your qualifications moulded a successful team,

Day 4 today was so well organised, to give the Students in Grade 12 an introduction to the Companies who may choose them for University (Tertiary) Studies & ultimately full time Careers, when they complete their schooling at the end of this year.

This organisation (Go for Gold) is so motivated with a small team lead by Bridget Ann Woods & Patti Bruyns. They all generate enthusiasm & student ownership of each his/her own way forward.
