Giving back to the Community: Students give their 67 minutes and a whole lot more!

In celebration for Nelson Mandela’s 95th birthday on 18 July all the RAGA family of students and staff assisted in creating a food garden at Kleinberg Primary School in Ocean View. The day started with clearing the ground of rocks, preparing the soil and plating seedlings. Many people from Ocean View and Kommetjie turned out to help and the garden was planted in a few hours. Not only will the garden help feed the children of the school it also will help the teachers explain and demonstrate parts of the school curriculum.

Well done to the RAGA crew for their hard work. It was much appreciated!
