INTERACT HOSTS PARTY FOR VUYANI

The annual Interact Induction Ceremony took place on 22 November where the new committee, under Chairperson Paige Hyland, was welcomed and tasked with continuing the good work of this club. Their first event took place after the final school bell for the end of year had gone where the learners of the Interact Club decided to do one more good deed before they went on holiday...have a small party for some of the children of Vuyani Safe Haven. Congratulations to Mrs Gamiet, Paige and the Interacters. It warms our hearts to see our learners' empathy and how they go the extra mile for their community.
