A South African Adventure

After a very successful ‘South Africa Cake Sale’ at the Junior School, in which parents and pupils exchanged school stationary for cakes, two of our pupils and their Mum travelled to the Sabi Sand reserve in South Africa to visit one of the schools that is set to benefit from the assorted school supplies.

Collette McIntyre, along with her children Lily (Prep 6) and Theo (Prep 4), made the journey in order to experience life for children in the Sabi Sand reserve and to see how the donations from the cake sale, which they organised, would make a difference to the disadvantaged community.

The cake sale itself, which took place shortly before the autumn half-term break, yielded a huge variety of school stationary which is set to be distributed by the Pride n Purpose charity.

During the family’s time at the school they listened to the children singing songs and reciting English and finished off with a mass football match!

In addition, as a result of cake sale monetary donations and a donation made by the Junior School they were also able to contribute a cash donation of £255 to the charity.

“Having visited the Primary School we decided to allocate the donation specifically towards the building of a kitchen for Ntseveni School.  The school kitchen currently feeds approximately 170 children twice a day using facilities which, as can be seen from the picture, are basic to say the least,” said Mum, Collette.

“This was one of the greatest experiences of our lives and was made even better by the support we received from the Junior School, pupils and parents.”
