Treverton College student one of five matrics chosen to go to Antarctica to learn about conservation and sustainable practices
Congratulations to Treverton College Grade 11 student Kai Broom, who has been chosen to go to Antarctica with Riaan Manser this December. Matrics in Antarctica went around SA to find five Matrics to join renowned explorer Rian Manser in the coldest, driest and harshest of continents, Antarctica. After receiving hundreds of applicants, a stringent process ended with five students being chosen for this life-changing adventure. Candidates were encouraged to display courage, perseverance, a champion attitude, and the ability to tackle obstacles with enthusiasm. Out of the five candidates chosen, Kai is the only student from Kwa-Zulu Natal. Two candidates are from Gauteng and two are from the Western Cape.
Treverton College in the Midlands challenges schools to contribute to conservation
Kai Broom and Jarred van Alphen, two grade 11 students at Treverton College, recently completed the Rhino Peak Challenge in 4th and 5th position at 3:15:00. The driving force behind their grit and determination is a cause that is close to both of their hearts; the continuation of conservation in the Drakensberg Mountains. Both keen adventure enthusiasts, Kai and Jarred have many incredible feats beneath their young belts, having recently completed the Drakensberg Grand Traverse in 12 days.
