Gr 12 learner, Eleanor Lea, is an achiever at Veritas College, Springs as well as further afield. She is on the Veritas Leadership Council and is also Head Girl of the University of Pretoria Youth Choir, leading over 90 choir members. The choir was recently invited to perform at the Dutch Ambassador’s annual Ladies Lunch in celebration of Woman’s Month. This event, held in collaboration with the University of Pretoria’s Vice Chancellor, took place at the Ambassador’s residence in Pretoria and proved to be an enormous inspiration to Eleanor. She was able to interact with many women from all backgrounds, including Thuli Madonsela, the woman whose integrity and enlightened views are respected and admired throughout the country.
Eleanor found this meeting hugely inspiring and her experiences have broadened her worldview immeasurably. We’re proud of you, Ellie. And what a magnificent photograph of you and Thuli Madonsela! (photo on top)
