HOËRSKOOL De Vos Malan Grade 7 pupil Cait­lyn Cas­sels will be par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Tod­dler and Tween of the World pageant in Klerks­dorp from Au­gust 9 to 11.

The 13-year-old head girl will com­pete against the win­ners of all nine provin­cial events as the East­ern Cape rep­re­sen­ta­tive.

An ad­mis­sion fee of R2000 must be raised by each con­tes­tant.

Ac­cord­ing to Tod­dler and Tween of the World direc­tor Bonita van der Westhuizen, “there will be amaz­ing prizes for the con­tes­tants, with our main ob­jec­tive be­ing to help our char­ity. Last year we were able to help 621 chil­dren with Christ­mas boxes, as well as 22 needy fam­i­lies.”

The re­gional event, or­gan­ised by Ri­h­naj Mod­els Man­age­ment In­cor­po­rated, saw con­tes­tants show­cas­ing their tal­ent to the joy of their par­ents in a packed Brei­d­bach Hall, with three-year-old Cait­lyn Olivier crowned as the win­ning tod­dler.

Ri­h­naj Mod­els man­ager Bren­dan Gosling, Le­meac Bezuiden­hout, Naomi Ester­huis and Leech Mul­lighan were the judges.

Cas­sels’s mother, Seno­lene, was over­joyed at the over­whelm­ing sup­port for the event.

“Thank you to Brei­d­bach and Schornville for at­tend­ing. Your pres­ence helped to make this even­ing a phe­nom­e­nal suc­cess.”

Fam­ily friend An­gelique Hill said: “We have no words to thank the com­mu­nity for their sup­port and will once again call on them when we host a high tea as fundraiser for Cait­lyn at the Schornville com­mu­nity hall on July 14.”

Tick­ets for the high tea fundraiser are R100 and avail­able from An­gelique on 084-061-9545 or Seno­lene on 079-495-916.
