Kidz Positive and essay GIFTS was fortunate to be involved with the recent Roundsquare Conference held in Cape Town. We have always believed that education can change the world and this organisation mirrors that ideal. Roundsquare is a global network of schools in 50 countries on six continents that is centred around six ideals of learning: internationalism, democracy, environmentalism, adventure leadership and service.
1300 kids from 70 countries traveled to Cape Town and were housed in either Bridge House in Franschhoek, St Georges Grammar School or St Cyprians in Cape Town. We worked hard to supply each and everyone with a conference bag, t-shirt and cap. Each bag was stuffed with a poncho, water bottle and Kidz Positive beaded South African Flags.
In addition, Kidz Positive operated a pop-up shop at the St Cyprians venue and were happy to meet up with old clients like St Mildred Lightbourne School in Canada and Ballarat Grammar in Australia.
It was hard work, but truly worth it! We are very proud to be associated with this organisation.
