Marketing co-ordinator at the school, Natasha Marot said there was a need to introduce an event catered to younger children and their families. “As we head into the warmer, summer months, we wanted to create a fun, outdoors event for families with young children. There are so many sporting events on the school calendar for the ‘older kids’ and so this event is an opportunity celebrate those aged four to 13 and their parents, caregivers, aunties, grannies, friends and so on,” she said.
HeronBridge College also has a partnership with Planet Fitness which is involved in the Nqoba Challenge, and had added their hand in sports development in the school. They previously worked with the school in the Standard Bank HeronBridge Invitational held earlier this year.
