Ameerah Elmie was one of the three members of the team representing Beacon View Primary School in Growsmart 2011. The team won the Growsmart winner's trophy on International Literacy Day 2011.
Christel House, South Africa, decided to award Ameerah with a full scholarship for the rest of her schooling. Soon after starting at Christel House in January 2012, Ameerah said, "I feel really lucky that I have the opportunity to come to Christel House. The past two weeks have really been a wonderful experience. The other children are very friendly. I love the Student Life activities and reading periods. All my dreams will become reality because of all the opportunities." Ameerah was the top learner in Grade 6 for English, Afrikaans, History and Geography. At the end of the year she received awards for excellence in Natural Science and Mathematics, and an award for the top academic achiever in Grade 6. Well done, Ameerah – we are so proud of you!
