Lilyfontein School Newsletter and Website Advertising Opportunities
Last week the #Lilyfontein rugby boys made great use of the gym to let off some steam during the exam sessions. This has proved to be a very valuable outlet during this time and the learners have enjoyed the opportunity not only to strength train but also an outlet for stress during exam time.
This week the #FutureLeaders helped the marketing department out with the annual Poster Party for the TROT! A big shout out to these learners for serving their school. Thank you!
How vital is adventure? We gave an expert and five young people a unique experience to find out. Watch what happened. Over three days, we took adventure away from Alastair Humphreys, a professional adventurer who thrives in the outdoors. Meanwhile, we gave five children an exciting weekend away from home to see what they gained. As a charity, we create unique opportunities for young people to discover the world and their potential in it. Why? Because where you go changes who you become.
The Adventure Effect!
