Pupils at De La Salle Holy Cross College, Victory Park

Our second group of bursary scholars started at De La Salle Holy Cross College on Wednesday 18th January. This group had taken starting at a new school in their stride and were raring to go! Sihle reacquainted himself with someone that he had been at nursery school with and Tawana headed straight for the fields to meet her new school mates. Being orientation week, they were all sporting lion ears and carrying their requisite bag of Simba chips!
