CELL C Take a Girl Child to Work Day has become a respected movement aimed at imparting knowledge to young girls. The campaign celebrated its 15th anniversary on Thursday, May 25, with the theme, “Dream, Believe and Achieve”.

The movement affords Grade 10 to 12 girls the chance to experience first-hand, the culture and people of an organisation. For many, the day spent in the working world, shadowing top executives and entrepreneurs opens up a world of hope and dreams that inspires girls to work hard to achieve what they want to attain in life.

It contributes towards making their dreams and plans achievable. It is a practical step towards enabling them to make the connection between what they learn at school and their future career goals.

An estimated 50 000 young women benefit annually as hundreds of companies around the country participate in this programme.

Hillcrest High were fortunate to be invited to partake in this empowering initiative by the Supa Quick Franchise at the Hillcrest Oxford Village.

The 10 young ladies not only did themselves and the school proud, they made a positive impression on the director of Supa Quick, Angie Frederic, who had said she thoroughly enjoyed spending the morning with the girls.

Kerry-Lee Dawson, teacher in charge, said: “Well done to you girls for taking the initiative to be part of this day, and for being exceptionally well behaved.”

These young ladies have been awarded a certificate each, The girls who participated were Mbali Dlamini, Thandolwethu Gumede, Thubelihle Manqele, Kelebogile-Ann Maroane, Phumelele Mchunu, Teddy Mkhize, Asanda Mthembu, Nolwazi Mthiyane, Charlotte Stainbank and Amanda Sogwagwa. - Supplied
