Ratang receives merit reward for bravery

15 November 2013 No Comment

Irene Primary School Grade 4 learner Ratang Bonelwang recently received a PicknPay School Club Hero award for his heroism in the Community Upliftment category.
Special guests at the ceremony included Irene Village Mall PicknPay Store Manager, Andre.
The taxi that transports some of the Irene Primary School learners on a daily basis suffered a puncture and the driver pulled into a petrol station.
He left the vehicle’s keys in the ignition and one youngster managed to start the engine and the vehicle started to move into peak traffic.
Ratang reacted immediately and managed to turn the steering wheel and stop the taxi into a gate.
A few of the learners were injured, but much of the damage was avoided due to Ratang’s speedy reaction.
He says, “Thank you a thousand times PicknPay – l am so happy and l can’t wait to start spending the money with my family during the Christmas!”
