Advertise in the Annual Lynx Magazine
We are beginning to prepare the annual Lilyfontein School Magazine for 2017 and would like to offer you an opportunity to advertise. The magazine contains 196 full colour pages that document the year through a series of pictures and articles. It is printed on environmentally friendly paper, to reflect our EcoSchool ethos, and is perfectly bound to produce a quality magazine. The magazine will reach nearly 500 families. The cost for a standard advert is R400.00 - this gives you a business card with your contact details, your logo and 50-65 words to describe your business.
You could also use this opportunity to help promote your favourite charity and maybe help them raise funds.
