Port Shepstone High School head boy Thomas Schnackenberg says the unprecedented effects of the Covid-19 pandemic has been both challenging and eye-opening.
“My experience of this lockdown has been an eye-opening one for me and I’ve realised how much we take our schools, teachers and so much more for granted.
“We are privileged at Sheppie High because our dedicated teachers are still continuing to work and help guide us through our syllabus.
“Yes, it is difficult at times to keep working and that is why it shows us now how much we love and appreciate our teachers.”
Thomas is an exceptional leader who influences others with his infectious smile, willingness to serve, unassuming ways and a sense of calm which always resonates to everyone around him.
Port Shepstone High School is blessed to have such a wonderful young man to lead his peers during these unorthodox times.
