Our school has reached a great milestone. This year, Midrand Primary School is celebrating our 25th anniversary. In commemoration of this milestone, we invite all parents and ex-learners to attend our Family Fun day on Saturday, 31 August 2019.  There will be stalls selling lovely goods and delicious food. We will have lots of entertainment and displays, competitions and much more. Not only will there be rides for the kids, but lots to do for mom, dad and family members. There will be numerous prizes up for grabs. Come and enjoy a fun-filled day with us as we celebrate 25 years of the existence of this great institution. Parents who are interested in booking a stall for the day can contact the school reception for more details. Hurry! Only a limited amount of stalls will be available at a cost of R650-00. We have full faith that our parents will turn up in their numbers in supporting our amazing school.
