Thank you for all the Rand you rallied around your house! We raised over R16,000! This will go towards future PA events and initiatives. Thank you!! And congratulations to grade 4 for winning both categories—they brought in a total of R4,111.80 for an average of R105 per student! Grade 2 came in second place also in both categories, so both grades have earned an ice cream party! Thank you again!
