Led by the matric students, they excel as leaders in both their tutor group and House. They maintained the promises made during Grade 11 leadership week, actively supporting the buddy system. They offer strong support, academically and emotionally, and engage in open, compassionate conversations, fostering a sense of accountability among members. 

Their competitive spirit shines as they secured consecutive wins in the Sunninghill Inter Tutor Games. Their commitment to service is remarkable, with Rory Cupido attending Service Pillar meetings and inspiring contributions to initiatives like a sanitary pad drive and a Mandela Day bread drive. This tutor group epitomizes brotherhood, genuinely caring for one another, embodying Ubuntu’s core principles.
