The Valley Pre-Primary Sandcastle Competition, held annually in March, has become a favourite fixture on the Cape Town beach calendar. This fun-filled family outing is also open to the broader community and provides a great opportunity to get children from all walks of life to experience the joy of turning sand into art. Fantastic prizes, food and drink stalls, music, a magic show and the ever popular kids’ zone for both sandcastle builders and spectators are all part of the day. Teams of between two and eight people may enter under various categories including Corporate, Schools, Teens, Family, and Kiddies. All money raised in the Sandcastle Competition is used to provide bursaries to enable children from less privileged communities in Hout Bay to attend Valley and also to provide educational support as required.
