KLOOF High entered the Allan Gray Entrepreneurship Challenge and competed against some of the top schools in South Africa - 80 schools entered.

Kloof entered two teams – the “Kloof Leopards” and the “Kloof High Commerce Extra-Mural Class”. These teams consisted of pupils from Grades 8 to 11.

They responded to business-related challenges and questions and scenarios online for seven weeks. This was a gruelling seven weeks as pupils needed to research and respond tactfully and intelligently to the various challenges posed to them. Each pupil spent approximately 35 hours on an average of 40 challenges over this period.

The school is proud to announce that two classes finished third and fifth respectively in South Africa, out of 410 teams, and overall Kloof High School finished first in the country.

There were 3 200 pupils who entered, nationwide­. Five of our pupils finished in the top 100 (silver) - Asanda Lembede, Aphile Shabalala, Hayden Lawrence, Musa Nkomo and Karabo Mofokate. Tia Fourie finished in the top 200 (bronze). Special mention must be made of Asanda and Aphile, who both finished in the top 50.

Four Kloof pupils collectively received complementary weekly prizes to the value of R2 500. These were for the top responses for various individual challenges.

The school is invited to a special awards ceremony in Cape Town on November 4.

Kloof High thanks and congratulates all pupils who participated. - Supplied.
