The finale for the Social Innovation Challenge was live streamed on Facebook 18 September.
Although our teams were not in the final, we supported other teams and Yeboneers were excited to see their colleagues from other schools. Part of the festivities included performing the Jerusalema dance and providing teams within each cluster with additional prizes.
Marconi Beam received the prize ‘Against All Odds’. This prize was awarded to the team who showcased a strong willingness to learn and use feedback to improve. Individual prizes were also awarded to 1 team member per school – ‘Spirit of Innovation’ award. This was given to a team member who supported the team in meaningful ways and kept the team on track and was decided by each school by using a voting system.
Busi was selected for Marconi Beam, Samkelo for Dunoon Primary, Zintle for Silverleaf and Mbali for Sophakama. A day full of excitement and celebrations!
