Die “Vrou van die Jaar”-toekenning is aan Ena Geldenhuys oorhandig vir haar liefde vir haar pasiënte en die toewyding waarmee sy aandag en versorging aan hulle wy.

In die kategorie van Sertifikate vir Uitnemendheid, is almal as wenners in eie reg beskou. In hierdie groep van 8, was daar 5 trotse Gansbaaiers.

Tommy Volkwyn, Skoolhoof van Gansbaai Primêr vir die positiewe veranderinge op verskeie gebiede by Gansbaai Primêr sedert sy aanstelling. Lesley Richardson, Executive Director of Flower Valley Conservation Trust, who promoted the need for ECD as foundation for conservation and community work, and secured a contract with the Department of Social Development for centre based ECD facilities.

Anchelle Damon from the Future Program at Grootbos who was chosen as one of the top three students to visit the Eden Project in Cornwall, England. She is a knowledgeable field guide and excellent ambassador for Gansbaai. “Aan almal wat vanaand ‘n sertifikaat ontvang het, baie geluk en dankie vir die voorbeeld wat aan ons almal gestel word. Kom ons raak almal op een of ander manier betrokke - Dit kan ‘n verskil maak!” het rdl Nicolette Botha-Guthrie gesê.
