About 170 students from local schools attended an Anglican Youth Fellowship (AYF) event at St Laurence Anglican Church in Du Noon, Milnerton, Cape Town last weekend in an initiative aimed at motivating Grade 12s from Inkwenkwezi High School ahead of their matric examinations and to pray for smooth examinations countrywide.
Students from Sophakama Primary and Du Noon Primary school also participated in the event and there was a good turnout of professionals who offered career orientation during an informal session at the start of the day. Thereafter two guest speakers shared the podium. Inkwenkwezi SSS principal Mr Kutu unpacked the role of parents in preparing, monitoring, and supporting their children during the examination period. Rev Maci impressed all with his message on the role of education in breaking the poverty cycle.
Top matric and primary school learners were awarded certificates. During a social engagement session two disadvantaged children were presented with school uniforms and the AYF gave some food parcels to Mrs N Mpepho, a safety mother who cares for abandoned children. A tree was planted as a symbol of hope in the face of the problem of global warming.
