KIMBERLEY Boys’ High School pupil Carter-Blyke Mc Dillon was recently awarded second place at the Nelson Mandela Museum annual Human Rights essay competition that was held at the Nelson Mandela Museum Youth and Heritage Centre in Qunu.

The winners were selected from over 600 Grade 10 and 11 participants from public and private schools.

Contestants had to debate their case before the school governing body, on the rights of pupils to attend school when they were in arrears with their school fees, basing their arguments on the Bill of Rights and other legislation.

Carter-Blyke’s English teacher, Nabeela Adams, stated that she was extremely proud of him.

Adams herself was recently welcomed into the fellowship of the Teachers’ Change Agent Network (Teachers Can) where 25 educators from across the country were shortlisted out of a total of over 140 applications.

The programme aims to assist pupils to reach their full potential in all aspects of their lives, promote equality in schools and make use of innovative teaching practices.

The English Grade 9-10 and Economic Management Sciences Grade 8-9 educator also intends to revive the school library, which was declared a provincial heritage site.
