Morgan Jones took part in the SA Road Cycling Championships for Juniors in KZN on 22 and 23 June 2019.

He rode as Eden (SWD) and Western Cape Champ in his Western Cape Champions jersey as the leader of the u13 boys team. The top 4 riders from each province were selected for this event.

The first race was the Individual Time Trial over 10km which Morgan won convincingly by 49 seconds.

2nd to 4th place were within 4 seconds of each other. The time trial is known as “the race of truth” as it is a measure of true ability.

The second race was the 32km team road race which Morgan came 4th in after dominating for more than 31km.

The finish was close with 9 seconds from 1st to 4th. The road race is very tactical and often the sneakiest(cleverest) rider wins!

Morgan was awarded the gold medal and trophy and SA Champions Jersey which he gets to wear for the next year in any road cycling races.

The Grade 6s of KPS went on a leadership identification excursion like they do every year. While walking from Brenton to Buffalo Bay, the learners were made aware of the pollution on the beach and assisted in a clean-up. Some of the items collected would be used in a sand castle building competition. This sand castle had to depict biodiversity and sustainable living. The learners were divided into teams and had the opportunity to show their leadership potential through many team building activities held on the beach.
