Young Cheetahs team’s design outclasses competition in Jaguar School Challenge

Four pupils from Charles Duna Primary School in Port Elizabeth could have a bright future as car designers after taking first place in the national Jaguar Primary School Challenge.

The Cheetahs, as they call themselves, won the provincial competition in October and went on to take top honours in the national showdown in Johannesburg on Wednesday

The Jaguar Primary School Challenge annually calls on schools to form teams of four pupils and design a race car out of 160g/m² card, complete with wheels, a body and a mini driver.

Grade 7 pupil Silindokuhle Zana, 12, said the trip to Johannesburg was his first flight.

“Children at school look up to us, they are proud of our win.
