NORTHLANDS Girls’ High School Grade 12 learner, Sarah-May Rowlands, was awarded Springbok Colours for Scouts recently. The Springbok award, which was presented by the Trafalgar Sea Scouts in Virginia, is the highest award achievable by a Scout in South Africa.

Sarah-May joined the younger members of the Scout movement after she moved to Durban with her family in her Grade 3. The Springbok award is the result of many years’ hard work.

“At times I felt like giving up, but I’m grateful to all those who helped and encouraged me to keep going. I in turn will help inspire others to reach their goals,” she said.

In order to acquire this award, Sarah-May had to complete at least 40 hours of community service, lead a hike of over 30 kilometres in unfamiliar territory, make a three course meal on the fire and plan and construct a pioneering project, which included a fully functional mini replica.

According to Andrew Graaf, principal of the school, Sarah has “a very keen and unwavering moral compass that informs her every action”.
