Grade nine Al-Falaah College pupil, Ismaeel Zahir Omar Noor Mahomed, has been selected to represent team South Africa at the International Junior Science Expo to be held in Gabarone, Botswana from December 2 to 11.
The school’s marketing and public relations officer, Ummesaad Mahomed said they are very proud of his remarkable achievement thus far and wish him well in the competition ahead.
“He has already engaged in a week-long preparation session to gain skills and knowledge to proceed further in the competition,” she said.
She further said the school thanks Ismaeel’s parents, Mr and Mrs Noor Mahomed for their immense input and unconditional support.
“They truly have provided Ismaeel with the encouragement and access to enable him to master key developmental tasks. A parent is their child’s first teacher and should remain their best teacher throughout life,” she said.
The school, principal and teachers are fully behind Mahomed’s excellent achievement and are providing additional support in his preparation for the competition.
