Knysna relief

Die onlangse brande in Knysna het skole van Pretoria genoop om die skole in Knysna wat deur die verwoesting geraak is te ondersteun. Ses Pretoria skole, Hoërskool Garsfontein, Hoërskool Uitsig, Pretoria High School for Girls, Afrikaanse Hoër Meisieskool, Laerskool Constantiapark en Anton van Wouw het hul hande en harte vir die volgende skole in Knysna oopgemaak: Knysna Montessori, Oakhill School en Knysna High School. Afrikaanse Hoër Meisieskool het as versamelpunt gedien. Die gemeenskap van Pretoria het ruim geskenk. Oud-Affies, ouers en leerders van Pretoria High School for Girls het die skenkings gesorteer. Vier-en-dertig ton kos, klere, beddegoed, skool benodigdhede en meer is reeds op pad na Knysna.

Moeder Teresa het gesê: “Dit is nie ’n Christen se plig om jammer te wees vir die noodlydendes nie. Om hulle te help, natuurlik wel.”

Please see below a few words from Flourish and Langa:

“The PHSG community would like to extend their love and support to the people affected by the fires in Knysna. As high school learners, we cannot imagine the impact that the trauma has left on the learners at this very moment. We hope that our donations of food, clothes, stationery, toiletries, household items and all sorts of necessities may be a starting point in rebuilding their new lives.” Langelihle Sitsha – deputy head girl, PHSG.

“The effects of the fire that has completely changed the lives of the people of Knysna has touched the hearts of the PHSG community. Numerous donations from money to clothes, toiletries and shoes were made by learners, teachers, parents, Old Girls (Alumni) and members of the PHSG community. It makes me proud to see the effort that so many learners made even when helping to wash, sort and bring in donations in the space of three days. This truly goes to show that when a community of people come together, good things can happen to bring forth a world of change in someone else’s life. We sympathise with the people of Knysna and I know that as a community we will continue to lend a helping hand wherever and whenever we can. I hope this to be a life lesson, not just to the PHSG community but to everyone that we must always think of others in crisis and what they are going

through in order to make the selfless act of caring.”

Flourish Oluwamakinde – head girl, PHSG
