Christ Church Preparatory School and College practises gratitude with the right attitude

| August 18, 2014 | 0 Comments

Out of a student cohort of 620 pupils from pre-primary to matric, six Christ Church Preparatory School and College (CCC) students (the school is in Midrand, Gauteng), have earned colours already this year — not all of them for traditional sporting codes.

Jarrod Waberski (Grade 3) has Gauteng regional colours for karting. Carissa van Rooyen (Grade 6) has Gauteng colours for swimming and holds the current world record for U/11 backstroke.

Wearing their Protea colours with pride, Reece Baynes (Grade 5), Justin Baynes (Grade 7) and Khardan Ruocchio (Grade 7) represented South Africa in Zambia at the end of June for karate. Rachel Sealy-Fisher (Grade 12) has her national colours in bouldering and represented South Africa in an international competition in Canada last year.

CCC gives as it receives. On 22 June, the school’s outreach club, Handy Footprints, together with Corpus Christi, a local church, shared the spirit of community with the residents of Olievenhoutbosch. “We believe in encouraging our learners to engage both their hearts and minds in reaching out,” says principal David Bell.
