When it comes to going back to school in the new year, children look forward to having brand-new school supplies, be it new stationery items, or new school uniform. Some schools are not that fortunate, and are comprised of needy learners who do not have new school items to look forward to in the new academic year. The Hollywood Foundation’s Back to School campaign aims to take this pressure off parents and helps to ensure that their children are motivated and ready to start the new school year through the contribution of new school items.
The Team from Wynberg was proud to pay a visit to Thomas Wildschutt Senior Primary on 17 February 2022, to hand over boxes of brand-new school shoes for learners to use this year. The school was happy to receive the assistance, as it is comprised of many learners who come from disadvantaged backgrounds. The school makes a meaningful difference in the lives of the learners by also offering homework assistance.
Ms V Naidoo, a representative for Thomas Wildschutt Senior Primary, said that the new school shoes will help to make the learners feel confident, as well as giving them a sense of belonging. She added that her goal is for children to have everything that they require for school.
