Waterberg Academy at Vaalwater celebrated National Rhino day on Thursday, 21 September, and held a fundraising competition. 

The learners each payed R5 to wear civvies to school. 

They also played a game called Pin the rhino Max. There was a big photo of “Max” with a secret spot on his back. Each learner had to pay R10 to try and pin the spot. The person closest to the spot, won R200, said Mark Godfrey, principal of Waterberg Academy. 

Bradley Eager, a Grd 6 learner at the school, won the Pin the rhino competition. All funds raised were donated to the Save the Waterberg rhino foundation, said Godfrey.

The learners were also educated about rhinos by Jessica Babich, a member of Save the Waterberg Rhino foundation and also a parent of Waterberg Academy.
