Carter’s Good Samaritans
Left to right: Calvin Scannell, Luke Pieterse and Terrel Gouws
On Friday 11 April at approximately 15h00, Terrel Gouws, Calvin Scannell and Luke Pieterse were driving home when they noticed smoke billowing out a house. They turned back to investigate and found an elderly lady standing in front of her house yelling for help. The boys jumped the wall to gain access to the property at which time the elderly lady ran back into her burning house. The boys followed suit and got the elderly lady out of the house and to the safety of her neighbours. Not thinking of their own safety, the boys used their shirts to cover their mouths and rushed back into the burning building to rescue the two dogs that were still trapped. They searched on their hands and knees through the smoke and burning furniture. They found the dogs in a room and brought the dogs out to safety just as the geyser burst and the roof collapsed.
On interviewing the boys they all said that they did not see themselves as heroes but rather good Samaritans wanting to help. These boys were presented with a ‘Service to the Community Award’ by the Principal, Mr Ashwin Ramgoolam and commended for their heroic efforts during a Special Assembly which was held on Monday, 14 April 2014.

Carter High School goes International
Carter High School is proud to announce that the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Education and Shanghai Municipal Education Commission has extended an invitation to six of our Dramatic Arts learners and one teacher to attend the Shanghai International Sister Cities Youth Camp from the 16th of July until the 29th of July 2014 in Shanghai.
The Shanghai International Sister Cities Youth Camp was started five years ago to bring young people from different cities or states together whereby they will be given the opportunity to promote mutual understanding, cultivate their cross-cultural communication and form a globalized insight through sightseeing, school visits as well as cultural courses.
The SHMEC (Shanghai Municipal Education Commission) has provided these learners and teacher with accommodation, meals, activities and local transport during their stay in Shanghai. The learners are responsible for the airfare to and from Shanghai at a cost of approximately R11 000.00 (eleven thousand rand).
Mr Jay Govender, Managing Director of Govenders Garage, is the first company to come on board and ‘adopt’ a learner. Mr Govender has made Luhle Shange’s dream come true by sponsoring her entire travelling costs of R11 000.00. Luhle had the privilege of thanking Mr Govender personally for his assistance and was overwhelmed by his generosity. Luhle is a dedicated and motivated young lady. She is a straight ‘A’ student and a competitive athlete.
