Through the competition, aspirant children from participating schools across the country are acknowledged and rewarded for displaying good etiquette.

Schoolchildren and teachers are encouraged to nominate children exhibiting exemplary qualities who are also recognised as role models by their peers.

Each school is requested to select a child who exemplifies the qualities of a do-gooder each week for the duration of the four-week competition.

Bryanston Primary School Grade 7, Camsey April was nominated for the Toys R Us TRUper competition for being a good example of putting service above self.

Marketing manager at Toys R Us South Africa, Nicole Annells said, “The competition recognises and rewards exceptional behaviour and deeds, no matter how large or small they may be, to emphasise the importance of being a good person.

“It encourages children to make a positive impact in their own little way while allowing their peers to recognise their fine qualities and actions.”

Mazvita, who is in Grade 7 at Buccleuch Primary, was described by her school as a caring, charitable and generous young lady who is loyal and committed to the school and her peers.
