MNR EN MEJ CURRO HEUWELKRUIN 2015 / MR AND MISS CURRO HEUWELKRUIN 2015

     

 

Mr and Miss Curro Heuwelkruin is not a beauty competition. For us the beauty of a learner on the inside is more important than the beauty of a learner’s outside. It is about what the students do in their community. The difference they make in the community and the love they have for others. To give without wanting anything in return. We make the learners aware of the reality, and what is going on around us. We teach the learners that to put a smile on someone's face is better than to have millions in the bank.

 

The finalists work very hard, they were all involved and helped wherever help was needed.

We had twelve finalists who were divided into 4 groups of 3 learners:

 

Group 1 - Nichardt van Niekerk, Janique Jacobsz, and Jaco van Wyk

  1. Ivydale Shelter, the learners provided the shelter with food, groceries, cleaning products and held an Easter egg hunt for the children.
