New student for 2015

We have chosen our new student for 2015 based on the recommendation of the teachers and principal at Holy Trinity Primary as well as the results of our Mathematics assessment. Bronwyn is Afrikaans speaking. She lives with her grandmother, 2 uncles and a cousin in a 2-bedroomed flat. Her mother passed away in 2013 after a long illness. Her grandmother is a pensioner who is financially responsible for Bronwyn. Bronwyn is hardworking and eager to prosper. Bronwyn has been accepted at DF Malan High School for Grade 8. Thank you to Principal Dorfling for giving CDC and Bronwyn this opportunity.


Our drive to improve the library at Holy Trinity Primary School and to start our reading club is going well. Thank you to Biblionef for their donation of 100 books and to FunDza for their donation of 50 books. Also thank you to our members in Switzerland and Germany and their friends for their book donations. We were able to collect 87 books. Further books, puzzles, colouring-in books, colouring pencil donations are welcome.


The fundraising event on 1 July at Silver Dollar Spur was a success. Thank you to all who supported us and thank you to Silver Dollar Spur for hosting the shadow shift event. A huge thank you to K.I.D.S (Klub Interact Deutsche Schule) for volunteering their time and participating in this shadow shift fundraising event.
