Camps Bay High School will be putting out food parcels to students identified as being in need of assistance over this unexpected extended break from school.
Said Camps Bay High School Principal, Mr Dave de Korte, “We are above all else a caring, community school and we recognized that the next couple of weeks may be quite tough for some of our learners as the unplanned extended break will put additional financial pressure on their families, particularly those who do not receive other assistance from bursary programmes or sponsors. So, we decided to put together a food hamper for these students, identified by their tutor teachers as possibly being in need of assistance.”
Camps Bay High School will be issuing these families with a food parcel every week for the next three weeks (the first one was issued today).
Said de Korte, “A big thank you to Ms Kirsten Mobsby – Head of Service at Camps Bay High School and Ms Carol van der Spuy – our school’s Marketer for co-ordinating this project at very short notice with the assistance of learners and parents including Cara Kahn from Camps Bay High School Alumni Association, Simone Segall and Janine Thetard from Camps Bay High School SGB, 2020 Head Prefect – Amava Mkuku, plus all the other teachers and members of CBHS PR Team who helped make this happen!”
