We tell you about our children but we don't tell you much about the staff - five remarkable women.
There isn't a Woolies in Kleinmond or Betty's Bay, of course, but most of us go to Somerset West or Hermanus now and when we do, we may shop at Woolies. Maybe like me, you like the sorbet.
If you have a My School Card you can swipe it at the till when you pay and a percentage of your payment will be donated to the beneficiary of your choice.
I'm asking you to get a card and choose to use it to support our children, our little Pikkewyntjies most of whom were not born under a lucky star but have a chance in life because of the love and care and teaching they get at school.
If this was an email I was typing I could send you the link so you could go directly to the site to apply for a card. I did try, quite hard in fact to make it work but I have to admit my incompetence and ask you please to spend an extra two minutes going to www.myschool.co.za yourselves. As soon as it opens you willl see the option, 'Get a Card'. Click on that to fill in the form and the highly efficient administration does the rest. I'd like to reassure you it is not a tiresome form you will wish you had never undertaken to complete.
Thank you very much for your tolerance and for making time to do this.
I hope it brightens your day to know it is people like you who are giving our children every reason to believe in goodness and kindness in the world.
