Port Shepstone High School is extremely proud of Marko Thom and Jesheran Yengopal who received their Silver level certificate in the prestigious President’s Award for Youth Empowerment.
The President’s Award is an internationally recognised award that encourages young people to be independent, community-minded and to strive towards their goals.
The Award is the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award in South Africa and is made up of three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold.
Participants must take part in and develop in each of the four categories required. They must take part in some kind of physical recreation (sport), they must learn a new skill, complete a set amount of community service and plan and go on an Adventurous Journey.
The Award demands that the learner be responsible for their own progress whilst trying to achieve their own personal goals.
