ABERDEEN — The pri­ze-giving ce­re­mo­ny for the le­ar­ners of Kam­de­bo P­ri­ma­ry School was held re­cent­ly in the Aberdeen Li­bra­ry Hall.

Pro­gram­me di­rec­tors Chris de Ja­ger and Da­niel Pie­ter­se kept the i­tems flo­wing, and had good con­t­rol o­ver the ex­ci­ted le­ar­ners.

The gu­est s­pea­ker was the Exe­cu­ti­ve Ma­yor of the Sa­rah Baart­man Dis­trict Mu­ni­ci­pa­li­ty, Cl­lr Eu­ni­ce Ke­ka­na, who li­ves in Graaff-rei­net. She told the le­ar­ners and pa­rents a­bout her links to Aberdeen, with ma­ny fa­mi­ly mem­bers still li­ving in the town. S­pea­king pas­si­o­na­te­ly and wit­hout no­tes, she emp­ha­si­sed the im­por­tan­ce of re­spect – re­spect for on­e­self, for pa­rents and for e­du­ca­tors.

The foun­da­ti­on pha­se and in­ter­me­di­a­te pha­se le­ar­ners then ca­me for­ward to re­cei­ve their cer­ti­fi­ca­tes from their class te­a­chers. P­rin­ci­pal Pie­ter S­ä­fers then ga­ve his ad­dress, than­king pa­rents and te­a­chers for their sup­port du­ring the y­e­ar. He al­so en­coura­ged pa­rents to be­co­me in­vol­ved with the SGB and to con­si­der stan­ding for e­lecti­on next y­e­ar.

The se­ni­or pha­se le­ar­ners we­re then pre­sen­ted with their di­plo­mas, and the out­going he­ad boy and he­ad gi­rl han­ded o­ver gif­ts to the s­pea­ker.

The top le­ar­ner in e­ach y­e­ar was then pre­sen­ted with a me­dal and cer­ti­fi­ca­te by the Ma­yor. The o­ver­all top per­for­mer in Gra­de 7, C­handré My­tie­niers, was thril­led to be pre­sen­ted with a trop­hy, as well as a cash pri­ze do­na­ted by te­a­cher Niel Pie­naar.
