Through Slipper Day – a fundraising project of the Reach for a Dream Foundation – the school raised over R7 000 for Reach for a Dream.  The founder of Reach for a Dream, Mervyn Serebro, shared an inspirational story with the school.

Reach for a Dream enriches the lives of children between the ages of three and 18, suffering from life-threatening diseases, by making dreams come true and as a result, distracting them from the needles, medication and hospital environment. These young children are under extreme pressure to deal with these medical issues and are in desperate need of all the encouragement they can get.

Slipper Day, a fundraiser for Reach for a Dream, encouraged learners and teachers to buy a R10 wristband and wearing slippers to school on that day.
