Our Graduation of Mixed Core 2018 was a grand end to a successful and action packed year. We had received our first rains and the bush had finally started to come alive.
Many parents from all over the world made the trek to Esigodini, Zimbabwe, to see Quest and witness their sons and daughters graduate. We were also joined by several members of our Quest Board, including our Director, Harvey Leared. Our Guest Speaker was farmer, human rights activist and part-time ski-jumper :), Ben Freeth. He gave an entertaining and clear message to the students, which most of us adults could also relate to, particularly after the recent months of uncertainty and challenges in Zimbabwe. David Carter opened the proceedings with a prayer, James van Wyk gave an Appreciation of the Intake, and Jess Attenborough gave the final vote of thanks. All the speeches this year were of exceptional standard and left lasting memories with everyone.
The award ceremony went off well, with Harvey Leared presenting the Leared Shield for the top overall student to Jessica Attenborough.

Many parents stayed the night and we all enjoyed a delicious sheep on a spit and a good party after the official part of the evening. As everyone left to go their separate ways the next day, the reality of the disintegration of their new found ‘family’ sunk in and many tears were shed. I am sure there will be lots of travelling amongst the group and reunions will be planned.
For now, its time to relax and recharge with family, to have a wonderful Christmas and look forward to 2019.
