Isola Brocker was school secretary from 1968 to 1979 and recalls that when she started, there were 28 children at the school, the principal and 3 teachers and that as the community grew so did the school. There were no school fees and Isola recalls that the ladies were as enthusiastic about fundraising then as they are now. She remembers the first fund-raising bazaar they ran which raised exactly R444.41 and with this they built a mini-tennis court. They also held regular dances, for the community at the hotel (which is now Stepping Stones). The R2 entrance fee covered snacks, curry and rice, and still left something for the school kitty. There were Saturday afternoon movies for the children which cost them R1 including sweets!
