Cordwalles Prep Annual Go-Kart Excitement
The annual Grade 7 Go-Kart racing at Cordwalles Preparatory School was a hit once more. The energy and excitement around the school was one like no other. The time had arrived for the Grade 7 Go-kart racing! The boys were divided into groups and given a criteria in which to build the fastest go-kart they could. Then their go-kart was put to the test!

Firstly, the groups were judged on engineering. Secondly, their pace around a circuit course in the JP car park and then thirdly, the ultimate test, was their go-kart able to survive the race down to Gibson field!?
As you can see by the photographs the Grade 7 boys did not disappoint themselves or the spectators.
There was loads of fun and laughter…..another exciting Cordies family magical moment!

Cordwalles Prep celebrates The Circle of Courage
The start of the 4th term began with a school assembly and the introduction of the theme ‘generosity’. This is the fourth part of the overall 2017 theme ‘The Circle of Courage’.
Kerry Peckham, the Cordwalles art teacher, thanked the boys for giving of their artistic talent last term when as a class project, they painted 20 canvases which were auctioned. These artworks raised an incredible amount of R55 061.00 for the Forever Wild Foundation. The money will be used to purchase a cheetah named ‘Cordies Hunter’.
Andrew Bone, an internationally renowned artist, conservationist and founder of Forever Wild Foundation, thanked the boys for their tremendous commitment and passion for conserving the dwindling numbers of cheetah in the Umfolozi Game Reserve.
Mrs Peckham ended the assembly by saying ‘Boys, kindness shows your strength of character!’
