1994 Plaque Progress: Carving Completed

The carving for the 1994 Form plaque is completed.  The photos below are of the finished carving, with descriptions of the symbols used in the design.


The upper right corner of the plaque features the flag of South Africa – adopted as part of the April 1994 General Election, marking the end of Apartheid.  Below the flag is the right side of Kehaya House.

The center vertical section features the Princess Elizabeth Challenge Cup atop the Henley shield, shown in the picture below it. The left edge of this picture has a section of a compass, representing the Thompson Island Outward Bound trip.


The bottom left and right sections contain a banner with the words “Education is the most powerful weapon” excerpted from the full quote by Nelson Mandela: “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Behind the banner below is the left hand side of Kehaya House.



Now that the carving is completed is will be oiled and stained before being put on display for Anniversary/Graduation weekend at the end of May.
