The Class of 1989 has pledged thousands of rands to assist their former school, Laudium High, with much needed equipment and facilities. 

A reunion was hosted on Saturday evening at River Runs Thru, attended by almost 160 students.

Former teachers were honoured at the event.

Mr M Pillay spoke about the role of families. He said technology, like cellphones, has now become an important tool in educating children.

Former Laudium High School teacher and activist, Yusuf Abramjee, said it was time for communities to stand up against crime and evils such as drugs. 

“Drugs are going to kill our future. We need urgent interventions,” he said.

He said discipline at schools was also “a major problem.”

One of the organizers of the reunion, Rukshana Carrim, who was also MC for the evening appealed to the former students to contribute to the legacy programme. So far over R60,000.00 was raised for the school to be used in one of the upcoming projects.

The evening was filled with fun and laughter! Everyone had the opportunity to reconnect with old friends and colleagues and catch up on the GOOD OLD Days!

The organizing committee thanked all those that attended the reunion as well as those who generously donated.
