Congratulations to Malaika Mohlaba who recently represented Stanford Lake College and Haenertsburg Rotary in the annual ROJAC competition. Malaika won the semi-finals which were organised by Haenertsburg and Tzaneen Rotary and held at Merensky High School on 13 August.
The competition included a prepared speech on Global Warming, an unprepared speech, some general knowledge questions on South Africa and a personal interview. Malaika was the worthy overall winner and went forward to the finals held at Curro Heuwelkruin on 24 August where she came fourth. ROJAC is a competition for Grade 11s to test their ability to make speeches and especially to consider their ambassadorial potential. Winners receive money to be put towards their tertiary education.
Congratulations to Margaret Libetwa from Mitchell House who won the competition, Nichola Glazer from Merensky who came second and Gerhard Maré from PHS who came third.
