Stop Bullying!

Ilse Schoonraad visited our school to share her life experiences with our learners (Grade R to 7).  Ilse was bullied at school which destroyed her self esteem.  It was only later in life that she realised that she could turn her experiences into positives and challenged herself to do what everyone said was impossible.  Ilse, at the age of 40, swam from Blouberg to Robben Island, she then went on to pull a 10 ton truck AND a Dakota Airplane!  She took on every challenge that came her way and succeeded!  She motivated and inspired our learners to make the most of every opportunity in life.  Most importantly, she dealt with the issue of bullying in a firm yet positive way.  Every child left the hall with the tools to make positive changes in their lives, no matter how small.
