Outreach

BUG BUDDIES

Each girl is a member of a family group, consisting of a girl in each grade from Grade R to Grade 7.

This provides opportunities for leadership to the older girls, as well as fostering a caring community in the school.

Fun projects help the girls get to know each other.

SUPPORT CHARITIES

We encourage our girls to be aware of the needs of others and to share our gifts and talents, as well as providing tangible help. Projects include fundraising for various charities through civvies days once a term, as well as collection of items for causes such as charities supporting children, animals, women’s shelters and others on House Days.

Our SRC spearheads drives during the year. In 2013, 11 274 marshmallow eggs were collected and distributed to The Maitland Cottage Homes, Arise, Linawo Children’s Home, Vrygrond Community Creche, Pollsmoor Creche and others.

The Early Act Club undertakes age-appropriate projects to help the needy.

Once a week we collect sandwiches to help feed hungry children at a less-privileged school nearby.

The Grade 7 girls collect items for distribution to homes for the aged, and spend time interacting with the residents.

EXCHANGES

Our school supports exchanges with several schools in Cape Town.

We have ties with Garden Village Primary in Maitland and as well as SRC links with Worcester Primary.

RECYCLING

As part of our drive to eliminate litter and encourage responsible use of resources, we recycle paper.
