A regional competition has been launched again for the second year to reward good behaviour and deeds by primary school learners.

The aim of the competition is to highlight the importance of doing out good deeds.

Toys R Us, together with the participating schools, will reward learners for doing good – be it for the community, other learners or the school.

Some of the schools that are taking part in this competition are Simon van der Stel Primary School in Wynberg, Bergvliet Primary School and Timour Hall Primary School in Plumstead.

Learners across the country will be acknowledged and rewarded for simply displaying good etiquette.

The competition invites children and teachers to nominate a schoolmate who exhibits exemplary qualities and is recognised as a rolemodel by his peers.

The competition, which kicks off this month, will see each school select a learner who exemplifies the qualities of a do-gooder each week for the duration of the four-week competition.

Out of these weekly winners, Toys R Us will announce the ultimate winner in December, who will win the grand prize of a Nintendo Switch video game console.

“The competition recognises and rewards exceptional behaviour and deeds, no matter how large or small these may be, to emphasise the importance of being a good person,” say Nicole Annells, marketing manager of Toys R Us South Africa.

“It encourages children to make a positive impact in their own little way while allowing their peers to recognise their fine qualities and actions.

“We hope this initiative will reinforce good behaviour in schools,” adds Annells.V For more information follow the Toys R Us Facebook page or @ToysRUs_ZA on Twitter.
