Giving Young Girls Dignity
Statistics indicate that almost nine million young girls aged between 13 and 19 miss up to a week of school due to the lack of sanitary products. To date, learners and staff from the High School have collected 2863 sanitary towels which will provide 10 young girls with this basic need for a year. These essentials have been passed on to students from the University of Johannesburg who have embarked on this mammoth project of making a difference with regard to awareness and need. The spirit in which this drive was conducted is commendable.
A very BIG THANK YOU once again to all those who contributed towards our annual blanket drive. This includes the ladies, especially Liz Norman and our support staff who sewed knitted squares together. More than 110blankets and many items of clothing suited for the colder weather were handed over to the Saint Vincent de Paul Society who will ensure the destitute receive the items. An excerpt of the email sent from St. Augustine’s on behalf of SVDP reads as follows: “On behalf of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul we thank you, Sister Bernadette and everyone at the school for your continued donations of food stuffs and knitted blankets for the poor of our community. May God richly bless you all”.
“To love God and neighbour is not something abstract, but profoundly concrete: it means seeing in every
person and face of the Lord to be served, to serve him concretely. And you are, dear brothers and sisters, in the face of Jesus.”
(Pope Francis, 5/21/13)
