Despite making a rather last-minute decision to enter the annual sand-castle competition, organised by Valley Primary School, on Hout Bay Beach – a team from CHELO (including students, staff and parents from the International School of Hout Bay) staged a spectacular coup, AND WON 1ST PRIZE!!!
CHELO is an organisation linked to the International School of Hout Bay, created to offer motivated children from disadvantaged families, improved education and learning opportunities.
The team worked with dedication and enthusiasm, all morning, to create a wonderfully mythical fort and dragon scene, and very deservedly received 1st prize.
Sincere thanks and congratulations to the following team members:
Floris Rinke de Wit (yr 3), Josie Benson, Jared Rodrigues, Jasmine Juries, Sebastian Puwani (all yr 4), Annabel Rinke de Wit, Sinipha James (all yr 5). Plus our two adults: Rhona Sehestedt-Larsen (teacher), Lisette Rinke de Wit (mother and CHELO member)
Thank you to all of you!
Sincerely, the CHELO board members.
