On the 17th March Hirsch’s and Rest Assured ran a competition where each of the Hirsch’s branches nominated a school to see how many Grade 4’s they could get on a bed. Brakpan Primary school was chosen as the lucky school to participate in this exciting event, and they managed to get 60 grade 4’s on the queen size bed and were the overall winners.
Hirsch’s visited the school to give them the very exciting news and as can be expected the children and staff were thrilled to be announced the winners. Principle Mo Samsoodeen was there to accept the prize – tenmattresses sponsored by Cloud Nine and Rest Assured for the preschool that they have on the premises.
The preschool helps the underprivileged parents in the area and a lot of the funding comes from the school by way of fund raising and donations.
Malinda Jacobs who runs the preschool was as excited as the children. “Thank you to Hirsch’s, Rest Assured and Brakpan primary. We need new matresses desperately and the kids will have a better nap time as well.”
