Written by: Matshepo Sehloho

In October, 702 Breakfast put under the spotlight on the plight of Sandown High School, a school in the middle of Africa's richest square mile which was struggling to keep its doors open.

At the broadcast, the school received over R100,000 in pledges and several businesses offered to help the school to refurbish its swimming pool and to do other maintenance work.
