Colgate Oral Hygiene Presentation

October , 2016

On the 14th of October 2016, dentists and oral hygienists visited the school to promote dental hygiene to the Foundation Phase leaners.

The event took place in the field and the kids had so much fun watching the presentation by Colgate. The kids were very excited about the drone that was hovering about taking pictures that at one point could not contain their excitement.

HHP has sentimental value.

July , 2015

Congrats!!! to Nicole and Martin

"I attended HHP from Grade 1. Martin joined in Std 4 (Grade 6). We were really close in our Standard 5 year – however, we fell out of contact when we left primary school, as we attended different highschools. (Neither of us had cellphones of Facebook to keep in contact ;-).)
We didn't speak or see each other until he contacted me via Facebook towards the end of 2012. He had recently moved back to Jhb from Cape Town, and wanted to reconnect with all his old friends. But this time, it wasn't just a friendship that was rekindled. We started dating, and 2 years later he asked me to marry him.
The perfect place to have our engagement shoot was where we first met – Halfway House Primary School. Which you so kindly let us do." - Nicole Blaauw.
