Hermannsburg Happenings

2017-04-26 06:00

IVAN Zimmermann - actor, singer and adventurer (Leaders Never Quit) - shared his experiences of his Cape to Cairo cycle tour, as part of the Tour d’Afrique in 2015, at St Cathryn’s on Friday.
Five of our pupils were invited to attend and were fascinated by his experiences.
“I plan to raise one tin of food for each of the 12 000 kilometres covered by the Tour d’Afrique (Can-a-Kilo initiative) as part of the adventure,” said Zimmermann. The trip to Cairo stretched through Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa and took him 121 days to complete.
He cycled from Beijing to Istanbul in 2016 - 12 280km in 145 days. His talk has motivated our pupils to never quit no matter what and to do things they would never think possible.
Thank you for this opportunity, and for inspiring our pupils. Thank you also to St Cathryn’s and the Kranskop Farmers’ Association for making this great opportunity possible.
