Mid Year

It has been a tough start to this year, with most of the board members ill, but the good news is that our girls are doing well and one of the board members completed her PhD. Congrats Dr. Ruby-Ann Levendal.

Bronwyn was struggling at the beginning of the year and did not perform well on her Easter exams. In the June exams she improved drastically scoring mainly 5's and 6's (60-80%) and averaging 67% (grade average 71%).

Keasha also improved her grades in the Easter exams scoring an average of 64% (grade average 67%). She is still struggling with Maths, which brought down her overall average, but there has been an improvement compared to last year. Her June results are not available yet.

Alison obtained an average of 60% (grade average 67%). She is also struggling with Maths but is receiving tutoring at the school. Her June results are not available yet.

Caylin's National Senior Certificate was accepted by the German authorities and her application at the University of Bremen is pending. In the meantime she worked part-time but now she is accumulating hours towards her Sociology degree application.

We are liaising with renowned documentary filmmaker Irene Loebell in helping with the screening of her new film called Life in Progress ( The screenings will be in Port Elizabeth at NMMU and we are hoping to organise screenings at various schools in Cape Town.

Due to our various illnesses, the fundraising has stagnated. With improving health, we hope to remedy this.

Thank you for your continued support.
