Carter’s Midmar Champ
Nickeil Gopicherran, a Grade 8 boy from Carter High, proudly poses for a photo boasting his medal and certificate for having swum the Midmar Mile for a 3rd time since he started competing. He completed the mile race in 31 minutes and 51 seconds. He enjoys the sport and has set his mind to competing in a sea-swim race soon.

Cayln’s amazing trip to the USA
Cayln Reddy is a Carter High learner who has had the privileged opportunity to be an exchange student. Cayln left for the USA in September last year. She is currently living in the State of Iowa in a small city called Clear Lake where she stays with her host mom and host sister in a house on the lake. She attends a very small school compared to Carter High but in this time she has developed close bonds with many people. She attends football matches, runs cross country, performs in the choir and takes theology classes. She even gets to ride the iconic yellow bus to school every day.
During her stay she has been very fortunate to have travelled to places like New York City, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, San Diego and Las Vegas. The memories that stand out for her were the trip to the Grand Canyon, walking on Hollywood Boulevard and going to the very top of the Empire State Building.
Cayln attended a conference in New York whereby she embarked on a feeding scheme project through an organisation called Mary’s Meals. Follow the attached link for further info: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGizlUPxaX4
Cayln has five months left in the USA before she comes home to SA but in the time remaining she hopes to achieve great things. She is a great ambassador for her country and her school and we wish her well in her stay in the USA.
