Dreams came true for graphic design student, Adri le Roux, when her design was chosen over 25 000 others for the plane that would transport the South African Olympic and Paralympic teams to the London Olympics 2012.
Adri, who studied Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge International AS Level Art and Design at El Shaddai Christian School in South Africa, won the South African Airways (SAA) Paint the Plane competition, organised by SAA to find a design for their Olympic Airbus.
Speaking of this success Adri said: "I'm delighted to have won this competition. It was a great project to work on, and being able to design the plane that now represents SA's Olympic team is a great honour."
Adri is now studying Visual Communication Design at Stellenbosch University’s Department of Visual Arts. She continued: "I am grateful to every teacher and art lesson that has helped to grow my capacity to achieve, including the Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge International A Level curriculum that was offered at my school."
