Wembley College Trail Run open to the public
To celebrate our country’s rich and diverse cultures, Wembley hosted a Heritage Day run on the 18 September 2020. Scholars came to school dressed in a wealth of colour and diverse costumes showing and expressing their proud heritage. Three pupils: Chinwendu Eke, Juandre Wilken and Celiwe Mbonambi were awarded prizes for the best Heritage Day dress. They received life-like leopard print masks. The leopard plays an important role in our Wembley heritage and is the main symbol on our badge representing the determined scholars we produce at the school. We encourage all our learners to be like a leopard strong, skilled and powerful when facing life’s challenges and opportunities.
The Heritage Day run will be known as the Leopard Run, in memory of the leopards who roamed across this area many years ago. The Leopard Run starts at the Hockey Astro clubhouse and detours around the Northfields Manor Boarding Establishment into the Wembley forest overlooking the Wembley dam. Once through the forest, the run passes the Wembley dam and climbs up Wembley hill back towards the school, winding around the Cricket Pavilion back to the Hockey Astro Clubhouse.
The Leopard trial is open to the general public and we would like to invite local runners and walkers to make use of this beautiful trial. On your run you may meet some otters, porcupine quills and various buck species. The route is beautifully marked with blue rocks, thanks to the Wembley Ground staff team. Runners and walkers are asked to park outside Northfield’s Manor Boarding Establishment. We look forward to seeing you on the trail.
