This morning we joined Durban Girls High School (DGHS)on their annual 8km Big Walk. The walk, recently renamed as The Pixie Hardman Memorial Walk after their late Headmistress, began at Ushaka Marine world in Durban. The girls then walked along the promenade all the way to the turnaround point at Bike and Bean before returning to the finish line where they had started.
It was a beautiful, sunny Durban winter’s day and the girls really committed to the “Throwback Thursday” old school fancy dress theme. There were so many different outfits, including Jumpsuits, Kiss (the band), 90’s denim, old uniforms, old school hip hop… the list goes on! We were very impressed… we managed some retro afros and sunglasses ourselves but we will have to up our game next year!
The walk is to celebrate the end of the second term exams before the winter holidays and to raise some extra money for the school to upgrade the facilities of the school for the girls.
We sponsored the event with some prizes and joined in today by helping to distribute water and sweets along the route. We want to say thank you to DGHS for inviting us along to join in with them. Having had a great collaboration with the school for a number of years now through AP Maths, NBT Preparation and Maths Online, it was great to support the school and their learners in a different and more social way.
