It is the culture of our college to annually award students who have excelled in their studies. Normally these students get different gifts ranging from cellphones, books, trophies, etc. At Umlazi-BB campus we decided to have a different approach to this.

We also reached the consensus to award our high achievers with driving licence lessons.
