Vicky Hyland, a grade five teacher at Auckland Park Preparatory, has challenged her class to sleep out in school corridors on Friday, 19 June.
To enter each pupil has to donate a blanket.
Hyland says she and her class feel inspired by the CEO SleepOut campaign and a book by Sandra Braude the class is reading entitled “Mpho's search”.
The book is about a boy who goes to Johannesburg to look for his father who works on the gold mines. He gets involved with other street children until his luck changes.
