Question Title

At the start of 2021, these two gentlemen were given the opportunity to further their high school career at Strand High School. On 15 February 2021, Gino and Jodeci, or Jodas as he is called, started their Grade 10 year at Strand High School. 

A big thank you to Mr. Danie Malan, Principal at Strand High School, who have impacted them in such a positive way. 

It didn't take long for the sports coaches to notice Gino & Jodas' talent on the rugby field as well as on the athletics track. They quickly broke records during the athletics season, won various medals and were included in the school's 1st & 2nd rugby team. In 2022, Gino was selected for WP Craven Week and subsequently he was included in the SA Schools team - an incredible achievement indeed! Both of them were selected for the school's 1st team this year. Gino was recently selected for WP Craven Week and he made the SA U18 sevens squad for the Commonwealth Youth Games happening in Trinidad and Tobago from 4 - 11 August 2023! 

A heartfelt thank you to Distance For Difference, individuals and families who have contributed since 2021 and to those who will be contributing this year. There will however be more expenses during their final year at school, eg. taxi fare - amounting to R750 per month per person, sport gear, stationary, lunch boxes/food, etc.
