Jovial was the spirit as Mowat Park High School celebrated their annual Founder's Day on Friday, 22 February.

As part of the day’s programme, academic, sports and culture awards were awarded to the school’s top achievers for 2018. Special guest speaker and past Mowat Park pupil, was Siphosenkosi Gcina.

Gcina is today a proud news producer for eNCA news. She reflected on her days as a ‘Mowat girl’ who once walked the passages of the school with big dreams of living a remarkable life. She encouraged the girls to focus and prioritise their studies, listen to the wise words of their teachers and to wear the Mowat Park stamp with pride.
