IT is very difficult for a pupil to fulfill his/her academic potential if he/she lacks the basic needs like food, clothing and health-care. The Angel Fund at Hillcrest High School was established to assist pupils in financial need.
In order to enable maximum concentration at school, the Angel Fund ensures that no child goes hungry at school.

The Angel Fund Committee activities are co-ordinated by a group of four teachers and a dedicated group of pupils. This committee engages in regular fund-raising activities.

Nicola L Kidgell, marketing and PR of Hillcrest High School, said that the bulk of funds raised are directed towards providing lunches for needy pupils. Hillcrest High also assists pupils who cannot access medical care.

“In addition we provide stationery and second-hand school clothes to those who cannot afford these. We have also assisted pupil’s families with groceries, until their circumstances have improved,” she said.

To raise funds for this cause the school hosted the Angel Tea drive recently.

“We worked in partnership with Dis-Chem on this event. We hosted ladies for a tea and pamper morning from 9am to 1pm at our school hall. Ladies were treated to tea with a scrumptious array of eats,” said Kidgell.

“Dis-Chem shared information on health and skincare. Dis-Chem also arranged for various leading cosmetic houses to pamper ladies with makeovers, nail painting and advice on beauty and health-care. There were lucky draws and significant Dis-Chem hampers that were given away.”
