They are among the country’s schoolchildren who have been rewarded for good behaviour in this year’s Toys R Us “Truper” competition‚ which highlights carrying out good deeds.
The competition invites children and teachers to nominate a pupil who exemplifies a “do-gooder”.
Teachers have embraced the competition and have nominated children who have overcome challenges and embarked on charity projects.
Glenwood Preparatory School’s Aidan Hutson from Durban “definitely deserves a break while he overcomes hardships”.
“Aidan has overcome many challenges over the past few weeks. His family was hit by the bad storm that hit Durban and has been staying with friends while their house gets repaired. While staying there he got bitten by a dog‚” his teacher, Linda Momberg, said.
Winning do-gooders are rewarded with a R500 Toys R Us gift voucher and have a chance to win the grand prize of a Nintendo Switch.
