Warming the blankets one baby at a time

Our  Grade 10 students recently participated in a Blankethon as one of their community outreach projects. This involved making a “no-sew” polar fleece baby blanket which will be distributed to babies in the maternity and neonatal wards of hospitals such as Baragwanath and Helen Joseph, as well as community clinics. The blankets are distributed by the Baragwanath Hospital Comforts Committee (BHCC) – Hospital and Clinic Outreach Project, a registered non-profit organisation. This is an ongoing project which the Grade 10 students have been involved in for several years. This year 115 blankets were made by the students and handed over to the Outreach Project. Well done to our students for their continued participation in this project.

Winter days made warmer with new mattresses

Yesterday, we were so thrilled to have handed over the mattresses and blankets collected for Thabisang Primary School in Orlando West.  Thank you to all of our parents for their contributions which allowed us to give 115 mattresses and a number of blankets to the Grade R’s. These were gratefully received by the Principal, Mrs Mabanga, and all of the excited Grade R’s. This contribution impacts the school greatly as it will provide all of the little ones with a mattress and blanket to sleep on and keep them warm and cozy during the cold winter. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Thabisang Primary School in the future.

Pajamas all day in support of pajama drive

We had a wonderful Friday with all children and teachers attending school in their pajamas. There was much excitement around the school amongst all the children. This day was put together to support a pajama drive for Project Orient. All pajamas, blankets, gowns, socks and beanies that were collected will be handed over to Project Orient to ensure that the kiddies in their schools are warm this winter. There was great support from the entire Pre-primary School for this wonderful initiative and we look forward to seeing many happy children with their new pajamas.

Trinityhouse Heritage Hill Pre-Primary – Reach For A Dream Slipper Day

Trinityhouse Heritage Hill Pre-Primary took part in the highly anticipated 6th Annual Slipper Day. They strive to give children the opportunity to create memories that will last for a lifetime through making their unique dreams come to live. Every R10 makes a huge difference and it equips us to make these Dreams a reality. This year they got super creative and replaced the normal sticker with a wristband. This wristband was designed with so much love & thought by their Celebrity Ambassadors.

Our children and their mommies were encouraged to buy a wristband and wear their slipper to school on the 12th of May 2017. It was a huge success.
We want to thank you for a your loyal support towards this initiative.

 

 

OPD “OPPOsites”- 25 April 2017

The Preparatory School got into the giving spirit once again for this month’s OPD (Other People’s Day) with a theme of OPPOsites. On OPD, the pupils are encouraged to do a chore and raise R5 to bring for charity and in exchange they can dress according the theme. This month’s OPD raised money to help FORA buy animal food. At Trinityhouse Little Falls, we pride ourselves in giving and helping others. Throughout our school and staff is a selfless, giving spirit to the community and outreach programs.

Trinityhouse Heritage Hill Pre-Primary Easter Bonnet Parade

On the 30th of March 2017, Heritage Hill Pre-Primary celebrated our Easter MAD (Make-A-Difference)
Day. Each child and teacher created their own Easter bonnet in preparation for our Easter Bonnet Parade. As
School we collected Easter eggs and R5 donations to send to the Pure Hope Kids Organisation. The children were filled
with pride when they saw how many Easter eggs they had collected! Thank you to all our wonderful families for their giving hearts!
