Lwazi Bubu, pic­tured, won’t eat un­less he is sure ev­ery­one in his Grade

5 class at Buc­cleuch Pri­mary School in Gaut­eng has some­thing to eat at break.

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.
