Sale of Work a blessing to the small school with the big heart


THE  ANTICIPATION was palpable again weeks before Sale  of  Work this year. Teachers and learners were organising, cutting, pasting, folding, stringing and even sewing.

The Grade 9s made everyone jump out of their socks with their House of Horrors. The terrified learners’ screams could be heard from afar. People who ventured inside felt chills all over their bodies just thinking about it afterwards.

The Grade 4 and 5 stall sold fresh produce and had a wonderful old-world feel to it. Many people bought the beautiful succulents, delicious biltong, ice-cream and fruit.

The beautiful decorations that learners had spent weeks to make were really worth all the hard work. The teachers were enthralled with how beautiful all the stalls looked. Even the books sold like hot cakes for once.  The Sugar Rush stall was a hit and everyone went back for more.  Girls really got a sugar rush from the delicious sweets sold at this colourful stall.

Mercedes Carson presented the fashion show, which was a mixture of 80s colour and fairy-tale princesses. The girls (and mommies) went to a lot of trouble. Congratulations to Hannah Heunis, who won the 80s section.             

The Colour Run was fun … lots of fun! Learners and parents were covered in paint even before the race started. Cat from Dancesation presented a Zumba preview, which got everyone dancing to the beat of Latin American music.

At the end of the day it was not about the sweets, or the eats, or the granny who fainted, but about having a good time with friends and family and working together and raising funds for the school everyone loves.
