Logan Huysamen from Summerwood Primary School in Port Elizabeth has embodied his school’s values by going above and beyond to make sure his fellow learners can get to camp.

“At Summerwood Primary School encourage and expect teamwork in our family school because there is such power in synergy, diversity and collaboration. This expectation applies to the children, teachers and parents both collectively and separately.” – Mr W. Foaden, Headmaster.

The Grade 6 learner was very excited to go on the school camp coming up soon, in the last week of September 2018, but found out some of his friends couldn’t attend because of the cost. He took it upon himself to ensure that no friend gets left behind.

Working on his weekends and late into the evenings, Logan made over 120 keyrings which he then sold to raise funds. These funds are being used to ensure that each child has the opportunity to go on the camp as well.

He was shy to tell people why he was making and selling the keyrings at first but as soon as he saw the impact his story had on others, he stood proudly knowing that he was helping out a fellow student.

“Our vision is to develop a well-rounded community of diverse learners by creating a caring and nurturing environment that supports excellence in education and development in all spheres of life”

Obviously, their vision and values are being well-lived out through Logan. His dedication to helping a fellow learner is inspirational.
