On Saturday the 17th of March 2018, Lauren Gericke, Kate Birch and Jessica Rubidge represented Putter School at Vega Vibe 2018.
Every year Vega Art and Business school host Vibe, a competition where teams of up to six learners are given a brief set by a local company where they have to help enhance the brand, solve problems and create innovative advertising campaigns, all in under 6 hours.
Lauren (Grade 11) and Kate (Grade 9), both Rustenburg students, along with a fellow Putterite attend Vibe. Although they were 3 team members short and hadn’t met up until the day, they were able to come in first place out of 12 schools, ahead of the likes of Reddam, Bishops, DF Malan and more.
The girls were also the youngest team of the lot.
Each girl was awarded a R1 000 Take-a-lot gift voucher as well as R7 000 towards their art school.
