Visiting the Cango Wildlife Ranch and Conservation Centre
The Cango Wildlife Ranch and Conservation Centre was a wonderful experience for students and staff on 17 May. The students were greeted with an insightful tour guide, Ranaldo, whom was very enthusiastic and entertaining. He taught the students about the different animals and why conservation is so important. The children asked a lot of interesting questions and had a chance to see the animals up close. Of the many animals viewed, the white tiger, cheetahs and sloth were really popular. All of the students then enjoyed a sociable lunch in the Turtle Restaurant. It was a truly memorable day.
Outstanding Cambridge Results for Anandi van der Merwe
Rundle College was extremely pleased to have private student, Anandi Van der Merwe, write her A-Level exams in the November 2020 sitting. Not only did she manage the lockdown well, but she travelled all the way from India to take advantage of the examination series at Rundle College here in George, South Africa. Regardless of the stress, uncertainty and excitement of the situation, she was awarded the High Achievement Award by Cambridge Assessment International Education for A-Level Psychology. Then, if that wasn't good enough, she then was awarded the "Top in Country" for the highest mark in South Africa for A-Level Business.
We are very pleased to have been able to support Anandi during her examinations here at Rundle College and wish her well for her future career!
