We wish to express our gratitude to the following sponsors
At the end of Term 3 the professional eye care team from EyeWorx, headed by Jaime Jacobson, came to do eye tests at CityKidz, and a long line of children from all grades kept our favourite team of optometrists very busy an entire day and an additional morning.
The EyeWorx team returned on Wednesday with 49 prescription glasses for our learners and next week they will deliver the balance of 14 more prescription glasses. Not only do our learners look really smart in their new specs but their lives have undoubtedly been dramatically improved. They will all be able to see clearly and their vision in class will improve.
Thompsons Security sponsored CCTV Surveillance cameras to the value of R40 000.
