Ruimsig Montessori Grade 6 learner, Ayomide Adeyemi, won the Sappi ‘Trees are Life’ competition in the Grade 1–7 division of the Tree Poetry category with her poem, entitled The Mystery Tree.

For the Tree Poetry part of the competition, a poem in either Afrikaans or English needed to be submitted, with a maximum length of one A4 page. Each school that entered the competition was only allowed one entry per category, and Ruimsig Montessori chose Ayomide’s poem. There were two categories for Art, Essay and Poetry in the competition, namely Grade 1–7 and Grade 8–12 and participating schools submitted their entry to the GauFestival Competition. The announcement of Ayomide’s achievement was made on 26 September, at the “Trees Are Life” School Competition’s prize-giving gala at the Brooklyn Theatre in Menlo Park.
