CONTRIBUTING to the welfare and conservation of two rhinos has been one of Highbury Preparatory School’s priorities for years. Paddy Collins, teacher at Highbury, is an active Wildlands’ Rhino Ambassador and through the annual Highbury Maputuland Challenge raised funds for this important cause. Eleven Grade 7 Highbury boys participated in this challenging yet rewarding event during the September school holidays. The boys, in groups of four, endured hot and sandy conditions along back roads parallel to the KwaZulu-Natal coastline and ran a minimum of 30km each in a relay format from Bhanga Nek to Sodwana Bay. The total distance was an impressive 75km. The boys were fortunate to experience the beauty of this pristine corner of our province and the physical challenge allowed them the opportunity to achieve a personal goal. A cheque for R35 000 was donated to Mark Gerrard from Wildlands Conservation Trust last week. - Supplied
