Head Boy 2023 Lesedi Pitjeng

As head boy, not only I'm I going to use my title and my light to inspire, motivate and uplift but I am going to use it for the betterment of the school and that of the community at large. I want to create a harmonious environment where the school, teachers, learners and even parents could work even better together. Most importantly, I am going to make sure my light shines so that each and every single learner of our school could be heard, appreciated and given the opportunity to grow.
