Charities

In 2019 Glenanda supported these charities.

Grade 1 - Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary

Grade 1 learners collected donations for the Rhino Sanctuary. Every donation made towards this cause, goes to providing food, safety and security for the survival of these little rhinos!

Grade 2 - International Tekkie Tax Day

Learners were required to pay R10.00 in order to wear their tekkies to school. We had a civvies day on that day as well.

An amount of R11 420.00 was raised. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this very worthy cause!

Grade 3 - Cake & Candy

We raised a phenomenal amount of R30 400. The grade 3’s have chosen to allocate the proceeds of the cake and candy sale to Stepping Stone Hospice in memory of our colleague, educator and friend, the late Mrs Anna Paixao who taught at our school for 19 years.

Grade 4 - The Street Store

The learners of Glenanda Primary were asked to donate old clothes and winter essentials for the needy. The response was overwhelming! The charity organisation was very grateful for the wonderful contributions.

Grade 5 - Sue Lubbe Soup Winter Warmer

The whole school got involved for the duration of two weeks and we collected non-perishable items to make soup.

We collected enough ingredients to make loads of yummy soup for those that needed it to keep warm during winter.

Grade 6 - The Teddy Bear Clinic

We have collected about 300 teddy bears from learners, moms, aunts, grannies and beloved friends of Glenanda Primary School.

Thank you to all knitters, especially the grade 6 learners, who contributed to such a worthy cause.

Grade 7 - Casual Day

The Grade 7 classes of 2019 decided to raise funds for one of our neighbouring schools, Frances Vorweg, which is a special needs school catering for children with physical and mental disabilities as well as ADD/ADHD.

We were able to raise R11 630 and all proceeds went to Frances Vorweg.

Prefects - Easter Egg Drive

We collected over 10 000 Easter eggs this year.

The Easter eggs were included in the annual Easter food parcel distribution, made possible by the Alberton Lions Club.
