Soccer teams embrace the cheetah

The school’s decision to change the boys’ team name to the Cubs and rename the girls team the “Cheetahs” was part of the school’s effort to support the Otjiwarongo-based organization whose Bush project has been chosen as one of the finalists in the BBC’s World Challenge 2009, a global competition aimed at projects showing enterprise and innovation at grassroots levels.
The name changes were announced as part of a ceremony at the school on November 10, 2009 by Dr. Laurie Marker, Founder and Director of Cheetah Conservation Fund and supported by Dr. Anne Schmidt-Kuentzel, CCF geneticists.
