Boys 2 Men Conference
Five of our Grade 8 boys, Ethan Cloete, Elijah Chetty, Sabelo Mlaba, Lindo Myeni and Vuthlhari Mabasa attended the Boys 2 Men Conference. The full day’s conference took place on 26 August at Coastlands Hotel and Conference venue in Durban.
This conference gave our boys, and 44 other Grade 8 learners from neighbouring schools, access to speakers and content that will add great value to their personal development. Various experts in their respective fields, such as business, entrepreneurship, sports and health, shared their insights to the attendees on how they defined their paths both in their personal lives and professional careers.
After listening to the various talks, the boys were given a group task of drawing a poster called “Boy meets World”. They were required to base this poster on their own life experiences and those of the day’s guest speakers. This activity added the learners’ practical involvement to the conference. A surprise half an hour bus tour of The Durban’s Golden Mile was the most enjoyable experience.
The boys also participated in a team building exercise towards the end of the conference. This allowed them an opportunity to interact in a creative and social way with other boys from other schools.
Our boys came back victorious with certificates of participation, individual gift hampers, a chess kit and football bibs. These five lads have unanimously donated the chess kit and the football bibs to our school’s thriving chess and football teams. Well done to them!
