Sandcastle fun at Hout Bay Beach

Valley Pre-Primary School’s annual Sandcastle Competition took place at Hout Bay Beach last weekend.

Hout Bay Beach came alive at the weekend for Valley Pre-Primary’s annual Sandcastle Competition. The event on Saturday drew hundreds of people. Families, businesses, schools and organisations pulled together to raise money for the Sonwabile Bursary Trust, which helps underprivileged children to attend school.

The children got stuck into their castles and the sand the minute the siren sounded.
Corporate teams competed against each other to see who could build the best sandcastle.
