Charity drive for 2017

Term 1 

  • Lunch box project 2017 

This project is voluntary and the idea is to provide an extra sandwich/fruit for learners in our school who need it and also for learners who forgot their lunch box at home.  A lunch box basket will be placed at the tuck shop each day.  The register class will make a list of all who volunteer to take part and each day someone will get a turn to bring an extra sandwich or fruit to school. These items get placed in the basket at the tuck shop. Leaners are welcome to help themselves. 

  • Curro Care Week (13 – 17 February 2017) 
  • Monday (06:30): Committee and council members welcome all learners to school by handing out Bible verses.  
  • Wednesday: We donate bags filled with toiletries to the learners of Vastfontein Childcare Village. Each grade gets to donate a different kind of toiletry item.  
  • Thursday: Grades 2 to 3: Invite someone to read a story to the class.  Grades 4 to 7 ask questions to one another to get to know each other.  
  • Friday: All staff will receive a snack box from another staff member or from the Curro care committee.  
  • 3 March 2017 – Women’s World Day of Prayer (MAD Moms) 

Term 2 

  • Second-hand clothes, shoes, baby items and blankets 

We will be collecting the above items during the second term. These items will be donated to the above-mentioned charities.  

Term 3 

  • Staff outreach project – ten-year celebrations 

Staff gets divided in ten groups. Each group identify an outreach project where they as a group can make a difference during the third term. It is all about giving your time and making a difference by doing something, e.g. visit an underprivileged nursery school and plan a fun activity with the learners.  

Term 4 

  • World Diabetes Day – 14 November 2017 

Theme: Eyes on Diabetes – leaners wear something blue to school and we encourage healthy lunch boxes. Our diabetes leaners get to wear a special T-shirt for the day. 

  • Collect non-perishable items 

We collect non-perishable items for our non-academic staff at school. This will be made up and handed over to them on the last day of school.  

  • Curro tradition 

On the last day of school all our Grade 7 learners donate their school shoes to the less fortunate. Dr Rheeders will receive these from the Gr 7 learners after the last merit function. These shoes will then be donated to Boschkop Primary Farm School.       

Curro cares  ̶  together we can make a difference!
