RAISING FUNDS FOR OUR SCHOOL

RAISING FUNDS FOR OUR SCHOOL

We have 3 ongoing initiatives to raise funds for our school.

  1. Tuckshop 2) Re-cycling and 3) Jumble

Every Friday the Makabongwe tuckshop opens with the most expensive item being R5.00 for a hot dog.

Ms Bongi, our cook, runs and manages the tuckshop.

We raise about R400 per month from our sales.

It’s also teaching the children life skills – what they can and can’t afford, what they need to save for and how to budget.

For example: they can buy 1 hot dog for R5.00 OR they can buy 1 packet chips, 1 biscuit and 2 sweets for R5.00.

If they started with R5 and they only spend R3, they have R2 change to buy more the following Friday.

There is the issue of litter but by the end of the day, the school grounds are clean and clear of chip packets, sucker sticks and any other evidence of tuck!

The children know the cleanliness of our grounds is very important.

We even have a song for picking up litter so it becomes an enjoyable task – something to look forward to!
