Mandela Day 2020

Communities across the world are affected by Covid-19 causing new social and economic challenges and exacerbating old ones. But there is hope. Individuals and groups are finding ways to help those in need in support of this year’s Mandela Day.

Our Pridwin Community is one of them and we are very proud to be partnering with an organisation called Joint Aid Management JAM SA this year.

Our Pridwin boys spent their 67 minutes packing care packages for children around the country. The care packages contained the following:

  • Mask
  • Sanitizer
  • Pen/pencil
  • Biscuits (crunchies)
  • Snack bar
  • Small gift

Our Junior Prep boys bought ingredients to make crunchies which were then made by our catering manager Mrs Jade Boltman. 4000 crunchies were the target which was then packed into little bags by the boys during the course of Thursday and Friday.

The Grade 5s and 7s were responsible for the dispensing of sanitizer into smaller bottles and packing masks into clear packets during Thursday. Our Grade 4s and 6s then spent their 67 minutes on Friday packing all the items into a bag.

All packing stations were monitored with social distancing and sanitizers were made available to ensure all safety regulations were adhered to.

We are proud of our boys for participating in this good cause and for reaching the goal of 1000 packages for children in need.

Thank you to our Pridwin Community for all your support and assistance in participating in this good cause and for helping those in need during these difficult times.
