We would like to invite our Pilsley families to take part in ‘Help a South African School Competition 2016’, organized by the South African fruit industry and growers association, HORTGRO. The aim of this competition is to encourage British children to learn about South Africa, whilst helping underprivileged farm and rural schools. As part of the project, we are entering a competition to create a collage to represent ‘A Taste of South African Fruit’.
Illiteracy is a big problem in South Africa and their schools are in desperate need of resources. As part of our ECO work and fundraising efforts in school, we would like to ask families to donate any unwanted English language text and reading books in support of the above. Any donations will be gratefully received by schools in South Africa, whose access to educational resources is extremely limited. Please bring any books into the school office by Wednesday 25th May. Thank you.
