Dear Parents

Lilyfontein School Achieves Diamond Decade Eco-School Award

This award recognises the achievement of the required international standards of Environmental Education, for 10 consecutive years. Miss Spies congratulated the school on building the love for the environment into everything we do and stand for. She reminded all the learners and staff to have fun and learn to play in nature.
