Seven RAGA students enter the world of work over the school holidays

Traditionally, December is a time when families go on holiday or relax at the beach. For seven RAGA students the school holidays was a time to gain work experience as well as cash! The skills of learning customer service, fi nancial responsibility & personal management will prove invaluable in years to come.

Of course the good feeling of saying “I earned it myself” is equally important and uplifting. Well
done all.

  • Siyabulela & Siphuxolo worked at the popular Food Barn Restaurant, Bistro & Deli in Noordhoek.
