On Thursday, the 16th of October, The School Governing Body and parents of Monument Primary School did their part for the community. They were involved in a pit stop for cyclists at the Berg & Bush 03 day stage Mountain Bike Race that started in the Oliviershoek pass area and concluded in the Winterton area. On the third and final day of the event over 600 tired participants cycled into the second and final water table known as “The Circus” which was the theme of the stop. All members at the water point were dressed accordingly and the music playing created an unbelievable vibe. When the cyclist entered the “tent” they were greeted by a huge cheer which brought on smiles after a gruelling 50km paddle. All cyclists were treated to cokes and a wide spread to eat, from steak to bananas and even pancakes. Sore muscles were taken care of, bicycle chains were oiled, and there was some time for a chat and rest, before off again for the last 10km to the finish. Monument Circus was voted the best water table during the event, winning an additional R2000, 00. Thanks to the Governing Body and all parents that helped, as well as all parents that donated a 2lt coke for the purpose.
