FAMILY FUN DAY

We are a few weeks away from our annual Family Fun Day and our new partnership with Nedbank promises to add more fun and excitement to the event, under the theme Drugs End All Dreams. We will have a 5 km fun run, a dance and singing competition, dads and lads mini soccer tournament, moms and daughters mini netball tournament and a variety of rides, jumping castles and slides.

We urge parents to show up in their numbers, to raise awareness and promote drug free living to the community of Midrand.

The entrance fee for 2016 is R60.00 per person. To avoid long queues on the day of the event, we encourage that payment be made to the class teacher.
