Lowveld Academy’s Primary and Secondary School took advantage of the mid-winter weather and made for the golf course for their annual Golf Day on the 25th of June at Drakensig Golf Club near Hoedspruit.
This year’s event, themed “Drive for Hope”, is one of Lowveld Academy’s annual fundraising events. The purpose for this year’s golf day was part of the school’s fundraising project to finish a first-rate sport field and complex on its premises in Huilboerboom Street.
Over 50 Golfers, comprising of the local community and business owners, filled up their score sheets on a day filled with many shenanigans, competitions and, of course, a great round of golf.
Golf club members came in with top scores, as expected with their skillset, but were also given a run for their money by many of the Lowveld Academy supporters.
According to Tilana Harding, spokesperson for Lowveld Academy, the golf day was an encouraging example of how the community of Hoedspruit and surrounding businesses assist to make events and occasions such as these a great success.
“In fact, the support has properly exceeded all expectations our organising team had set for this event”, said Harding.
The feedback from the golfers and guests who attended the LA “Drive for Hope” challenge was extremely positive, with the principal of Lowveld Academy, Gert Rautenbach, commenting; “it warms my heart to see so many of our parents and benefactors once again stand by us to grow our school and enjoy what we have to offer. It is a debt we can only hope to repay by excelling in every opportunity this affords us.”
Lowveld Academy thanked all their sponsors for their amazing turnout and support, in the process not just helping build a top performing school for their own kin, but also allowing for the development and successes of many more students.
