- A school in Cape Town has set a great example for the rest of Mzansi to follow
- Camps Bay High school will be donating food parcels to families in light of the early school closure
- The school acknowledges the added financial burden the decision places on underprivileged families and will therefore assist with the donations for three weeks
A high school based in the plush suburb of Camps Bay in Cape Town is setting an impressive precedent.
Based on the Atlantic Seaboard, the area is known for attracting some of the richest people in the world.
However, Camps Bay High school has recognised their social responsibility of uplifting and assisting those in need.
They pride themselves on being a caring community school and initiated a noble project to assist underprivileged families over the next three weeks.
As a result of the early school closure amidst the Covid-19 scare, Camps Bay High recognised the fact that the decision could have a significant financial impact on their less fortunate learners.
The school has therefore launched a campaign to donate food parcels for those families in need - specifically those who do not receive added assistance from bursaries or sponsors.
The news was shared via Instagram and Briefly.co.za noted the overwhelming support, as social media users are heaping praise on the school.
Daniella.segall simply said,
"Well done so important to look at all the things that impact."
"Well done and thank you."
In other school-related news, Briefly.co.za reported that Carol Tshabalala’s eldest son recently attended his matric dance.
The SuperSport presenter gushed via social media and spared no expenses to make the evening one to remember.
