It was with great pride that a number of our students were invited to attend the prize giving for the Limpopo President’s Award Programme.  Stanford Lake College was acknowledged for being the school with the most enrolled students in Limpopo and special thanks were given to Mr Matthew Venter for the essential role he played in enrolling and encouraging students to successfully complete the programme. Students and parents were addressed by a powerful speaker, Ms Tshepo Mathabatha. She reminded everyone that, as young people, there are no promises of jobs in the future, but with the necessary skills and attitude, one can ensure one’s success no matter what the circumstances. She emphasised that many of these skills can be acquired or learnt by various opportunities like the President’s Award Programme.

Over the past year the following students completed the various levels of the programme and we look forward to them completing the ultimate Gold Award.
