“Friday Pie Day” was the shout heard up and down the hallway at Kimberley Independent School on Friday 5th October. The students embarked on a Thanksgiving endeavour that would place a pie in the hands of each family to further brighten their celebrations. All students, from pre-Kindergarten to grade 9, took part in the creation of over 110 pies.
