United by K-Day 2020 Challenge

Saturday 13 June 2020

 With K-Day 2020, as we know it, having to be cancelled due to the Corona virus, it was decided that we should do something which celebrated the uniqueness of the relationship that exists between our schools. Boys and girls, staff and parents from all six of our schools took part in a joint run, walk or ride event on Saturday. Just over a thousand people took part and were able to accumulate some 12 500 kms taking us all the way up to the Arctic circle, having achieved our first goal of travelling from Cape to Cairo.

Submissions were sent in from all over Africa and beyond. Here on campus, the Matric boys that had returned, along with some staff and family, headed for Mountain Drive for a ride or run, did laps around Lower or ran a lap or two of A Block in town. There was a good vibe evident and the cool conditions made getting out and exercising a pleasure.

Thank you to all those who participated. It was great to be part of a bigger cause and we hope that some of the spirit of K-Day prevailed, wherever you were.
