Successful dinner

Although a small group, we had a successful fundraising dinner on 5 April 2014. New interesting acquaintances were made and we also have two new families willing to sponsor a student. The food was great, thank you Mama Africa, and the wines too, thank you Thelema, Klein Constantia, Reyneke and Welgemeend. Thank you once again to Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Francois Pienaar for their generous donations towards our auction. Words cannot express our gratitude for the support we received from all involved.

More good news - after extensive discussions with the principal and teachers of JvR, they have decided to waive the school fees for Keasha and Alison. Instead the school fee money we have paid will go towards the hostel fees, so that Keasha and Alison can get the support they need. CDC will pay the difference between the school fees and hostel fees. Thank you to the leadership at JvR for making this possible.

It appears that the basis of Mathematics laid at primary school is not sufficient to enable a smooth transition into high school mathematics, resulting in the girls not coping with the content of their mathematics subject. To facilitate a smoother transition, the mathematics competency of prospective CDC sponsorhip recipients will be assessed via a Maths competency test created by Mr Kuhudzai (a maths teacher at the German School Cape Town). Any problem areas will be addressed prior to the students starting High School.

Although the library at Thomas House is being used regularly, it is not reaching its intended audience, therefore CDC is looking into moving the books to Holy Trinity Primary School and to improve the library at the school. Actually one needs quite a bit of imagination to call these rooms a library. The ideal would be to start a school-based community reading club on Saturday mornings (10h00 to 12h00) aimed at enhancing literacy development through storytelling, reading and writing.

CDC Cape Town will be hosting their annual Mother's Day Brunch at St Mary's Cathedral Parish Centre. It promises to be an enjoyable event with loads of entertainment, and great prizes to be won.
