Support Touch Africa

27 June 2017

Dear Parents

Touch Africa is an organization that 'helps to make school a better place' by meeting the basic needs of previously disadvantaged schools. The libraries they supply are refurbished shipping containers that hold 2 500 books.

Schools requiring assistance are carefully reviewed, their leadership team evaluated and school's needs assessed. As our contribution to Mandela Day (which falls during the school holidays), we would like to support Touch Africa in their endeavours by asking each Chelsea Family to donate a Grade R - Grade 5 fiction / non-fiction/ picture / reference book from home.

Since 'Teaching for tomorrow through reading and technology' is our focus this year, and the fact that the education of our future generations was so close to Nelson Mandela's heart, we felt this an apt and worthwhile means to celebrate Mandela Day.

Please send your contribution to the Media Centre before 30 June 2017.
