WATCH: Bracken High learners rubbing shoulders with 947’s Anele and the Club team

1200 Bracken High learners had the opportunity to watch Anele and the Club broadcast live at their school.

Bracken High School had the honour of experiencing Anele and The Club broadcasting live at the school from 06:00 to 09:00 on Friday 17.

Learners, together with their teachers, welcomed 947’s Anele and The Club team warmly they could not wait to see the team broadcasting live at the school.

This follows the school’s selection as one of five lucky schools for the 947 School Invasion programme for 2024.

Bracken High had David Adekeye representing the school in the spelling bee competition which also featured four other learners from Hoërskool Pretoria Wes, Roedean School for Girls, Heerengracht Primary School, and Hoërskool Monument High School.

Adekeye made his school proud as he managed to beat his peers and became the overall winner of the spelling bee competition.

“I’m full of emotions and I thank the Lord I was able to make it. I thank all the people who supported me on my way here and a special thanks goes to my mother,” said Adekeye.

This opportunity was made available by Brand South Africa’s Play Your Part campaign, which urges all individuals to demonstrate the spirit of ubuntu (humanity).

The collaboration between Brand SA, 947’s Anele, and The Club embodies the essence of Brand South Africa’s Play Your Part programme, which aims to strengthen the spirit of our nation by inspiring, empowering, and celebrating active citizenship in South Africa.

This year’s school invasion programme offered to provide each of the five chosen schools with the resources they needed to continue their fantastic work, do even more amazing things and make a difference in their communities.

“Play Your Part initiative is to promote active citizenship and promote pride and patriotism. With Brand SA’s involvement in the school invasion campaign, 947’s Anele and the Club team help us to go to schools to promote active citizenship,” explained Roxanne Francis, Brand SA’s digital specialist.

“Schools communicated their needs and we were able to reach out to private and public sectors to sort of come on board and help the schools where necessary. We also had schools like Roedean School for Girls that said they want to make a difference in the lives of other schools,” explained Roxanne Francis, Brand SA’s digital specialist.

This opportunity allowed Bracken High to request Anele and The Club with Brand SA to help the school with a digital board that they can use to display the school’s events and other important stuff relating to the school.

“We have asked to be assisted with a digital notice board for outside the school to advertise our school functions and events,” said Jenny Woolway, Bracken High deputy principal.

Francis mentioned that Brand SA noticed that most schools have literacy problems, and fortunately, several corporates came on board to assist in curbing the issue.
