Knights Pendragon held their 26th annual Youth Leadership Training camp the Scripture Union, Kadesh Barnea camp in Skeerpoort, Magaliesburg, in mid-May.
The Training camp was attended by 65 grade 11 learners from 21 schools from the East Rand and Johannesburg. Each school is asked to choose the learners they send based on their leadership potential and such that this potential can be further developed. During the 3 day camp learners are taught a variety of leadership and teamwork skills by professional facilitators who are assisted by the Rotarians of the Knights Pendragon Rotary club with the various exercises. The skills learnt are such that they can be put into practice both at school and in their future work environments.
Rotary does not charge for this project and is dependent on the donations of socially responsible companies to enable the club to provide these life skills to young leaders. We are greatly appreciative of the sponsorships contributed by our corporate donors. In particular, we would like thank Mrs Anina Koekemoer of Koekemoer & Adendorf Inc. and Mr Chris de Beer for sharing their invaluable knowledge with the learners at the camp.
