YCAP 2019 : 

Well done Kranskop Primary YCAP team – 2nd place at Nationals in the beginner category!

On 16 August 2019, the Provincial winning team, accompanied by supporters, left for the National Competition to be held on 17 August at Kopenong Hotel and Conference Centre in Benoni, Gauteng.

The standard of the presentations was exceptionally high and the competition was tough – our Director, Mr SW Keswa, joined the team to support them.  After the presentations, the team enjoyed some sight seeing around Benoni.

The final results were revealed on Sunday, 18 August 2019 and Kranskop Primary YCAP team was the runner-up in the beginner category.

Well done to the team.


Our school Youth Citizen Action Programme (YCAP) team represented Umzinyathi District at the Provincial competition held on 19 July 2019 at Dokkies in Durban. 12 Districts participated and the teams were allocated 15 minutes to present their topic. The competition was tough as we witnessed the high standard of presentations by the different Districts. After the long wait for the results, our school was declared the provincial winner. Kranskop Primary School YCAP team together with Ms TP Shange (the teacher in charge) will  represent Kwazulu-Natal at the National YCAP competition to be held on 16 August 2019 in Johannesburg. Well done to our team.
