Due to the ongoing drought in parts of South Africa the Representative Council of Learners initiated a water project among the students. The idea was to lend a helping hand to the wider community and for students to think about others in need.
The school partnered with Operation Hydrate and thousands of litres of water were collected by students and then dropped off at the collection point in Maitland.

Before school, during breaks and after school the Reeler Centre (our Learning Hub) is always alive with learning and actitivity. Many of the children play chess when visiting the Reeler Centre and this year Mrs Cheminais would like to purchase a pirate themed chess set for the children to utilise.
Chess is a wonderful way for students to stretch their minds and develop logical thinking patterns. The set weighs 1 kg and the biggest piece is 8 cm tall. Each piece costs R50. If you would like to sponsor a chess piece the money can be handed to Mrs Cheminais or you can pay by credit card at fees office or EFT (reference: Reeler Centre Chess Piece).
