Northcliff Primary School believes that in order to accept yourself you have to accept others.

This year the school registered to support people with disabilities for Casual Day, which was on 1 September.

“[S]upporting people with disabilities is a great cause, one which I am so pleased that we as Northcliff Primary School took part in,” said Amy Jonker, head of social media.

Casual Day is the flagship project of the National Council of and for Persons with Disabilities (NCPD) and is in its 22nd year. The NCPD has five focus areas, which include providing assistive devices to persons with disabilities, sensitisation and disability equity training, universal access scans and audits, promoting disability awareness and advocating for disability rights.

This year’s Casual Day theme was to show uniqueness and diversity while wearing the colour green. The school sold tickets at R10 each, proceeds of which went to Casual Day beneficiaries who support people with disabilities.

“I am so proud to be a part of a school which stands for more than just the academics and extra-curricular. We stand by all individuals and always do our best to be a part of something more,” Jonker said.
