TERM 1

  • Launch the Judea Hope project by handing out money collection cans

Each child received a Judea Hope money ‘can’, they were asked to collect at least R25 before 14 April 2015.  The money raised will then be used for our Judea Hope project.

**Judea Hope (www.judeahope.org) in partnership with My Foundation (www.myfoundation.co.za) is planning a record breaking One Million Meal Packing event for 5 and 6 June 2015. The meals are packed by volunteers, from the corporates, churches and schools that donate R25 000 for 50 food boxes and 16 000 meals. Through a fun and engaging assembly-line process, a team of 40 volunteers can pack 16 000 meals in just three hours. We plan to pack one million meals in a 48-hour period, where the 65 teams will relay each other every three hours. The meals are highly nutritious, dehydrated meals comprising rice, soya, vegetables, flavouring and 21 essential vitamins and minerals. The meals were designed by a medical doctor, Dr Anton Janse van Rensburg. They are easy to transport, store and distribute to those in greatest need.

  • Curro Care week (9 – 13 February 2015)

The theme for this week will be 'a tithe' (giving a tenth).  Each class will pack one or two shoe boxes filled with toiletries.  This will be donated to the learners of Vastfontein Childcare Village.  On Friday, 13 February 2015 the staff members will serve lunch to all the ground staff and assistants of the school. 

  • World Prayer Day for Women (6 March 2016)

The theme will be 'Jesus said to them: Do you understand what I have done for you?'  We would like to invite all our Grade 6 and 7 girls to an afternoon tea. Venue:   School hall (14:30).  More information will be sent out at a later stage.
