On 13 August 2015 Gcilitshana, Mahola, Hangana, Makhuzeni, Gladile, Tyali and Mpana took part in the Environmental Awards Competition representing St. Matthews High School Geography Learners.
The results were announced at 16H15(Regent Hotel) that we managed to place second in the Regional phase 2015 and won R15000 for our school. When I first heard the news, I was very ecstatic, my hands were shaking and my heart was beating faster than usual.
East London offered us a great time and I truly admire the beauty and kindness of the Department of Environmental Affairs who served us.
This for us has been an incredible achievement, as learners of St. Matt, we are grateful for this opportunity. We hope to take first place next year.
