Stanford River Talk

Onwards and upwards

Stanford is proud of the achievements of Anchelle Damon who, after leaving school, has taken every opportunity that came her way. From applying to go on a three month course at the Chrysalis Academy in Tokai where she abseiled, kayaked, hiked and rock climbed, she also learnt about hospitality, computer literacy and tourism. Later she went on to complete the Growing the Future Programme at Grootbos.

For Anchelle one of the highlights of the Grootbos programme was being chosen to visit the Eden Project in Cornwall, England for three weeks where she propagated plants from Africa. Since her return she has studied to be a Field Guide and has been appointed as the Head Coach of Netball for Football Foundation of South Africa, working in Gansbaai and Stanford schools. She is a role model for young girls, showing that if one

takes opportunities when they present themselves, and works with enthusiasm, one can go forward in life.

Anchelle received a Certificate of Excellence from the Mayor this year.
