Four Northern Cape schools put the schools in the pro­vince on the national, and possibly the international map.

Learners of the Wrenchville High School are gearing up to bring home gold from the upcoming South African Schools Moot Court Competition held in Pretoria from 4 to 7 October.

These learners, along with learners of the Hotazel Combined School, stand a chance of winning bursaries and a trip to the Netherlands to be part of the international Schools Moot Court Competition. This follows their second position in the recent provincial competition, held on 7 and 8 September at the Kimberley High Court.

The two schools from the John Taolo Gaetsewe (JTG) Region made it to the top four, in which the Hotazel Combined School ended fourth.

The other two Northern Cape schools are the Kgo­motso High School, which came first, and the St Boniface High School, which came third.

The South African Schools Moot Court Competition is an annual moot court competition established in 2011 aimed at creating greater consciousness and understanding in South African schools and communities about the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa and the values embodied by it through the active participation of learners in a moot court competition.

The schools received a hypothetical case which dealt with school uniforms and the school Code of Conduct where they had to write essays as the applicant and responded.

The top ten schools in the province where invited to compete at the provincial finals to qualify for one of the top four positions to represent the Northern Cape at the finals.
