A Centurion high school pupil who started off as a small B-side reserve runner, has made his way to the forefront of rugby teams and academics.

The young man has never quit as he went on to challenge his opponents for top positions in numerous fields.

This year has been of endless achievement for Ruben Venter, who became head boy of Sutherland High School; captain of the first team rugby; received a red blazer for honours in leadership; became the first at Sutherland High School to achieve the Gold Standard Presidents award; and received his white academic honours blazer and his sans peur blazer for honours in academics, leadership, sport, culture and service.

Deputy principal Carol Riddick said: “Ruben has always been willing to help out and participate whenever someone was needed. He has worked really hard to achieve the goals he set for himself.”

“In grade 10, he made the first rugby team. Ruben improved with each game and towards the end of 2015 he was selected to represent the SA 7s rugby team in Dubai.”

Venter’s appetite for success has not diminished as he has earned double honours in sport, culture and service, to qualify for his excellentia blazer for extra murals.

Venter’s hard work and dedication has so far paid off as he was invited to play for the SA u.19 7s rugby all-star team in the US in July.

Venter said he owed all his achievements to the great team of coaches and staff at Sutherland High School.
