Dear South Africa Tour students and parents
Thank you for your patience and support during this busy and difficult time.
- We will soon be ready to refund payments for the tour. I understand our Accounts people will be in touch with you in the next few days to discuss tour refund options.
- Regarding fund-raising money, as mentioned previously, we hope to consolidate these funds and send them through to our partners in South Africa so they can continue to support and care for the underprivileged and poor in their care. These partners will include JJ Haven orphanage in Alexandria, Sinethemba Homeless Shelter in Port Elizabeth, Cape Town United Sports Academy, Kidos Shelter in Port Elizabeth and Mokone Primary School in Cape Town. Although this is not the same as our students being on the ground in South Africa, we hope they still feel they are making a difference to these organisations as a result of their efforts over many months.
- We intend to meet with the student tour group later in the year to share the impact of their fund-raising activities.
