HIRSCHS CARNIVAL – CELEBRATES WORLD SLEEP DAY:
World Sleep Day falls on Friday, March 15, and as usual, Hirsch’s had some fun, community-driven, ideas up their sleeves to celebrate. Together with Cloud Nine and Rest Assured they came up with an activation to see how many GRADE 4 learners could fit onto one queen size bed for at least 30 seconds. The activation took place at Die Arend’s Primary School in Brakpan. Commented the store PRO Chantelle du Plessis “the students were so curious as to what was going to happen and when they heard they were allowed to stand on the mattress they jumped for joy! A whopping 39 children stood on the mattress and as soon as they were stable, the countdown began.
Hirsch’s Carnival informed the learners about how important sleep is their mental and physical health. Cloud 9 and Rest Assured have come on board with us to donate sponge mattresses for a pre-school of our choice. The school in the Hirsch branch catchment area that clocks up the most bodies on a bed are the winners and they get to nominate the pre-school to donate the sponge mattresses to. Watch the press for a follow-up announcement!!
