On 17 September 2016, St Andrew’s School for Girls in Senderwood, Johannesburg, Gauteng, hosted its annual Spring Expo, which has been running since 2009.
The expo has become a highly anticipated annual community event, comprising a number of stalls and many fun-filled activities. It was a truly enjoyable day for many individuals and families. This year, St Andrew’s School for Girls was fortunate to receive support from First National Bank (FNB), which played a key role in making the day a success. The event supports local businesses and trade and also benefits its internal stakeholders, such as the school rowing club and the Matric Dance Committee, in their fundraising efforts.
There were over 100 stalls available to visit at the expo showcasing fashion items, children’s toys, motor car displays, interior decorating, gifts and much more. Says Daniella Rossouw, part of the school’s marketing division: “This year, we were proud to introduce new brands to our elite list of exhibitors, such as Harley Davidson, wool products and matric dance dresses, to name but a few. We also had fun activities for the children, such as 25 different Rainbow Inflatables, including the 5 m Twister Slide and the Wipe Out base jump; the ever-popular House of Horrors and a new toddlers’ play area. There was also a food court, catering for many culinary tastes.”
The annual official South African Schools’ Rowing ergothon once again took place at the Spring Expo and brought great excitement, with over 800 entries on the day. The four senior school houses at St Andrew’s also battled it out on the squash courts for the coveted interhouse squash trophy.
“The St Andrew’s School for Girls Spring Expo 2016 was a wellbalanced event, providing a wide variety of treats and bargains and offering patrons an opportunity to experience the lush gardens and rich history of the school. Here’s to another worthwhile event at the Spring Expo 2017 next year,” says Rossouw.
