A quote from Frank Lloyd Wright, a famous architect, “I know the price of success: Dedication, hard work and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen”.
Charter College recently celebrated learners’ success in the academic, cultural and sporting field during our prestigious annual honours evening which was held on Tuesday the 28th of November at Kloofendal NG Kerk.

Well done to all award recipients.
Success does not equal material wealth like expensive cars or luxurious homes. Success isn’t just about what you achieve in your life; it’s about what you inspire others to do. As we continue on our chosen path let us never ignore our core values of respect, honesty and responsibility, for without them our success is nothing. Your footsteps and your voices will continue to be heard in these buildings long after you have gone. May you too achieve success in your lives but never at the expense of others. Do not allow the corruption and evil of the world to influence you, but rather be beacons of hope that light up the darkness.
As Martin Luther King, one of the greatest leaders of the 20th century said, ‘Life’s most persistent and urgent question is; What are you doing for others?’
