PORT Shepstone Lions’ 29th Annual Leadership Retreat was held over the weekend at Camp Anerley.

A total of 42 Grade 11 pupils, recently selected for the Port Shepstone High School 2016 Executive Council of Learners (ECL), attended the camp.

Leadership development of our youth is one of the core projects of Lions­ Clubs International and this project is one of the signature service projects of the Port Shepstone Lions Club.

The full weekend programme commenced shortly after they arrived at the camp on Friday with a welcome, course briefing and a talk on Lions Clubs International.

The group was thereafter broken up into five colour-coded teams and took part in team-building exercises.

Presenters included Pastor Trevor Downham, Kerry Mc Killen and Lions Jeff Smith and Peter Mc Killen.

The Grade 11’s arrived at the Lions’ formal dinner at Port Shepstone Country Club on the Saturday night, wearing glittering make-up, elegant evening wear and smart suits.

The Amazing Race floating trophy was presented to the blue-coloured “Royals Team”.

The event was once again a resounding success.

On Sunday, the group once again had an early start for exercise and breakfast followed by more lectures and talks.
