Weeks of planning and enthusiastic coin collection culminated in a spectacular display. The school’s drive was transformed with names of iconic films, scenes, and characters, all meticulously depicted by the register classes. Learners’ efforts were complemented by teachers, who embraced the theme with delight, dressing up as mascots for their respective classes.
