Lynford School crucial to sani2c success
Ixopo – The fourteenth KAP sani2c is beginning to come into full
view with just four weeks to go until it gets underway, and with
many contributors that make the race what it is, one stalwart,
Lynford School in Ixopo, has been crucial to the success of the
event since its inception in 2005.
The relationship between the race and the local school can be traced
back to when race founder ‘Farmer’ Glen Haw was a parent at the
school and was in charge of raising funds for the school in order to
keep it accessible to the greater Ixopo community.
For headmaster of Lynford Tim Botha the support that they receive
from the event is crucial, however the school’s parents, staff and
children are also fully involved in making sure the event is a
success every year.
“We remain tremendously appreciative of our partnership with Farmer
Glen and his team, as well as of the riders who continuously support
our school,” Botha mentioned. “There is no doubt that our continued
success is dependent on the continued success of the sani2c event.”
With a number of different initiatives on the go at Lynford, the
school continues to use the money received to keep the school as
accessible as possible to the people in and around the community.
“The money raised has helped develop a meaningful Lynford Trust Fund
which enables us to provide 25% of our student body with
considerable financial support.
“This partnership with sani2c has afforded previously disadvantaged
children the opportunity to attend our school and enjoy the
standards synonymous with Independent Education,” Botha explained.
The committed staff members at Lynford provide the backbone of the
school and help the educational facility to continue to grow and
attract new children. The KAP sani2c plays a crucial role in the
school maintaining their educational excellence.
“This funding has also helped to ensure that we are able to attract
and keep a team of highly qualified, experienced and motivated staff
– the most important asset in the education of our children.”
In what is one of the most exciting projects that the school has
undertaken, they have had the help of sani2c in building projects
around the school.
“A large portion of the funds are allocated to various building
projects in our school.
“We are currently in the process of building a new school hall,
which is by far the largest undertaking in our school’s history,”
The KAP sani2c has many beneficiaries that they contribute to every
year and 2017 saw the event race R9.6 Million across the three
events. The support from the riders and the endorsement by all
partners means that the sani2c continues to be at the forefront of
community growth and development and continues to be “More than Just
