Rihanna Malgas, a grade seven learner of PRPS Piet Retief Primary School has been awarded a scholarship to attend the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy in Meyerton for Girls in 2020.
Scholarships are awarded to a number of girls who go through a series of selection assessments. These girls are chosen because they have demonstrated academic ability, shown an interest in the world around them, have the desire to step forward, learn and to serve others and have shown leadership potential.
Amongst other things, all of PRPS Rihanna’s tuition costs will be covered, as well as her lodging throughout the year. In return, she will be expected to comply with a rigorous academic curriculum as well as participate in the co-curriculum programme which covers sport and cultural activities and service to the community.
It is truly a great honour and tremendous opportunity to be chosen to attend this academy. Congratulations Rihanna! We believe that your journey will be a roaring success.
