Crawford college hosts an annual event to thank the parents for their support. On the school’s 20th birthday, Crawford College partnered with YDx to mark this special occasion.

It was important to the school to draw families from the Sandton school as well as the other Crawford Schools in Johannesburg to celebrate its 20th birthday, to keep a Scottish theme and to include something new and funky to the celebration.

In keeping with its Scottish roots, the event included the sounds of pipe bands and the traditional cutting of the haggis.

The school also entered into the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest Harlem Shake.

In addition to securing sponsors, prizes, a celebrity DJ to MC the event and junior DJs to keep the festivities up, there was also a carnival, fanfare rides, a family market, cupcake decorating, magicians and face painting for the children, picnicking and loads of entertainment!

YDx managed the entire process from conceptualisation to managing the event on the day and getting prior permission and approvals from the JOC, Metro Police, security and medical teams.

The event was a huge success and attracted almost 3,000 people!
