It is all systems go for the 2018 Mr and Miss Kimberley Schools pageant to be held on Saturday (12/05).
The pageant, which has grown from strength to strength over the past four years, will be hosted at the Mittah Seperepere Convention Centre.
In an effort to accommodate and showcase more talent, the organiser of the event, Manaka Productions, in partnership with Express Northern Cape, has incorporated primary school contestants for the first time in four years.
This year’s theme is “Wild things”, and 44 models will be participating.

At least 13 high schools and seven primary schools will take part in the event.
