Youth Conference

WHEN?          01 – 04 July 2019

THEME:         Youth taking the lead and fight against risky behavior

WHERE?        Nelson Mandela University

This conference was attended by learners all over the Sarah Baartman’s District and it was a mix of both genders. The main purpose of the conference was to teach the youth of South Africa about the risky behaviors that they get themselves in such as unprotected sexual activity, illegal substance and drug abuse which are commonly used by the youth. We learned about many things in the conference but the main lessons were about how we can prevent ourselves from getting HIV and that we shouldn’t be discriminating the LGBTIQ community.

Motivation for a Drug Free Tomorrow

Motivational Speaking – Mr Malibongwe Joka

On the 22nd of February the learners from grade 8 to 12 were visited by Malibongwe Joka a motivational speaker from The Department of Justice in Middleburg.

He touched on very serious issues that the youth are facing today, especially those that are still in school. He touched on drug and alcohol abuse and how it affects us from a very young age and how drugs would destroy your dreams. The session was very educational and motivational at the same time.

The learners who attend learned valuable information and we would like to thank Mr Malibongwe Joka for taking the time to motive our students and faculty.
