2016 Pick’n’Pay Mathaithai Trail Run and MTB Race

 

The 2016 instalment promises to be an event on another level altogether with the 25-kilometre route taking runners from bushveld through gum plantation to spectacular indigenous forest and on up to the very top of Tshufi Hill, which affords fantastic views. The trail is mostly singletrack and highly technical in parts due to gradient, boulders and loose gravel.

 

The Pick n Pay Mathaithai Trail Run 2016 will take place on Saturday 22 October at Lebone College outside Rustenburg. Now in its fifth year this fun and challenging run will feature a 5km family, a 10km Trail Run and the mainstay, the 25km Tshufi Hill Challenge, aimed at serious athlete only.

 

A new addition to what is a festival weekend is the Pick n Pay Mathaithai Mountain Bike Race on Sunday 23 October in partnership with Rustenberg Cycling.

parkrun

 

Lebone parkrun began in 2015. It marks a meeting place of our school community and the Phokeng and Rustenburg communities around us, all of whom share in the fun and fitness. Lebone parkrun is free and takes place at Lebone II – College of the Royal Bafokeng every Saturday at 7am in summer (Oct – Mar) and 8am in winter (Apr - Sep). The team of volunteers is proud to share the parkrun experience with new members and enjoy the beauty and adventure of the Lebone parkrun. The route snakes up through the stunning Lebone II campus, onto the Tshufi ridge, and back down again into the bush around the school, making it one of the most challenging parkrun routes in South Africa.

 

We look forward to seeing you at parkrun, where we welcome everyone. Bring your friends and family and make new friends. To join, please follow www.parkrun.co.za/lebone, or follow the Facebook page

 

Johnny Clegg Unplugged

 

Wow, what an evening! Johnny Clegg performed live at Lebone ll College on Saturday the 7th of May 2016. Lebone ll had never put on a show like this before – almost 2000 people joined us for this special evening, and we all enjoyed every minute of it, from the food and the atmosphere to the spectacle that was hearing Johnny Clegg perform live, including two of his classic songs sung with the Lebone ll Choir.

 

Mr Clegg had agreed to do this inaugural concert for Lebone ll in order to aid with scholarships for children studying at the school. We thank him for his kindness and graciousness, and for allowing us to share in his talents.

 

Upcoming

Lebone Leadership Festival

 

The Lebone Leadership Festival takes place annually and has existed since 2012. Lebone II aims to bring together 140 students from different schools, communities and backgrounds to share in a week of workshops, presentations, discussions, forums, site visits, readings, team building and leadership exercises. This is not limited to South Africa; international schools are also represented. The aim of the Festival is to provide exposure to an interactive leadership programme in which young adults (16 – 17 year olds) from a wide variety of backgrounds, including both rural and urban spaces, are able to attend. Attendees are introduced to many influential and dynamic leaders within the South African context and have the opportunity to hear from these leaders as well as to interact with them.

 

The Festival programme aims to develop independent thinkers and agents of change for whom values are the utmost importance, using the following objectives:
• Developing an appreciation of leadership as a service and as a collaborative pursuit • The interactions of young people and sharing of social justice issues from their context • Infusing attendees with a desire to broaden their experiences and to aspire to a greater cause • To raise the profile of quality leadership • To establish a live, interactive social media platform on which our delegates can share their thoughts, ideas, stories, as well as a site from where they can affect change.

 

Through presenting, teaching, discussing and debating the assumptions and prejudices that exist about women, each attendee left with a clearer understanding of those around them and of the experiences of others in South Africa.
