The Back to School campaign by the Hollywood Foundation also seeks to put a smile on the faces of children who are often overlooked in society. These children are just as important, despite their physical and mental differences. It was an honour and privilege for the Team at HUTS to visit Bright Future Special School in Lakehaven, on 21 January 2022. The school has a special place in its heart for children with special needs, and it has been assisting these children since 1993.
Learners view this school as a safe haven, and apart from educational activities, the school also seeks to build the skills of these learners through extracurricular activities. Previously, the school was comprised of learners who came from disadvantaged areas, and could not afford stationery items and school uniforms. The Team was proud to hand over an array of special stationery items, such as educational toys, play dough, plastic balls, number charts, puzzles and paints. The children also received school shoes and school uniforms.
