In Term Two, the Sun Valley Grade Seven students and staff set about on a Community Project like no other. We launched CLOTHES TO CASH at Sun Valley Primary for the second year in a row.
In Term 3, Clothes to Cash Project Manager, Christopher Lane visited our Assembly to hand over the cheque and share a little more about the project.
For the second year running Sun Valley Primary School collected the MOST amount of bags by any school in the Western Cape. We collected 516 bags which equaled 2977,28kg (Nearly THREE TONS)
This meant that we were given a check of R8 696,00.
So, what do we do with this money? As an organisation, we have decided to team up with the Masi Youth Sport Programme in Masiphumele. This Foundation is fully self funded. Their vision is to better the lives of every young boy and girl in Masi through empowerment through sport.
We will be using the money to collect these students for rugby, provide them with the appropriate kit, meals on a Saturday morning and transport home. This programme will continue throughout the year.
Thank you to C2Cx for their amazing input in making this project such a success. We aim to be the top in the province for a third year in a row in 2017.
