Laddsworth supports Free Me
Free Me visited Laddsworth in September and did a presentation to the whole school, on what Free Me does for injured wild life. Mr Brian Maphanga, a wildlife rehabilitator, explained the importance of leaving healthy wildlife alone, but taking injured wild life to Free Me as quickly as possible. Laddsworth held a Civvies day on Friday, 9 September to raise funds for Free Me, and an amount of R2870 was raised.

The Laddsworth Grade 7 Pupils performed the annual Grade 7 Play between 5 and 8 September, under the guidance of Mrs Di Smythe (Director), Mrs Gillian Olivier (Musical Director) and Mrs Ruth Lindsey (Choreography). This year’s play ‘Hillbilly Hayride’ has been heralded as being the best Grade 7 play, by quite a few members of the Hilton community. The plot of ‘Romeo and Juliet of the Hills’ was adapted and directed by Mrs Smythe, who has been directing the Grade 7 play for the last 13 Years. A Western theme, complete with spectacular accents, was used to make the play lots of fun. Congratulations to all our talented Grade 7 pupils!
