Alizwa Ntlokwana and Seth Davidson have earned their spots at the Dubai International Master Spelling Bee; they are about to set off for their dreams.


Knysna, South Africa (01 September 2022) – Two bright young minds are getting the chance to follow their dreams after earning their places at the Dubai International Master Spelling Bee. Alizwa Ntlokwana and Seth Davidson will be competing with several other South Africans at the end of September.

The Knysna Initiative for Learning and Teaching (KILT) has aided Alizwa and Seth in getting to the event at the end of the month.

KILT was established in 2016 to help build an empowered community through education. It was started by Ms Gill Marcus after she retired. Knysna-based school principals approached her and asked for help with problems they faced in their schools. Together they were able to address many of the problems these schools faced. Today, KILT runs 18 projects in 17 public schools in the Knysna District.

“Alizwa and Seth have both been committed members of KILT’s Afterschool Study Club Programme, which has helped them to further their personal and academic development and supported them to become top achievers. Their outstanding academic record bears testimony to the immense benefit of this programme.

Let’s wish Alizwa and Seth a successful flight towards the destination of their dreams!”

We wish the pair the very best on this exciting and educational journey! You can find out more about the work being done by the Knysna Initiative for Learning and Teaching via Facebook here.
