Environmental Affairs

On the 13th of august, Sibonise Gcilitshana, Somila Dyabuza, Olwethu Nciza and Avile Mbenya went on a competition in East London to compete against several schools. The main objective for the competition was to propose renewable energy solutions for the lack of electricity and climate change factors affecting the Eastern Cape Province. The competition was really tough. Many schools presented other alternatives that posed a threat to us, but we were able to come up with one of the best solutions in the whole competition, which enableed us to win 2nd place and bring back home a prize of R15,000. We lost to St Christopher’s, but we did the best we could to uplift the name of our school and market it.
