HEATHERBANK Primary School recently received a much-needed donation of tables and chairs from the Varsity College Port Elizabeth campus.

The donation helped to fill the additional classrooms which were recently added to accommodate the school’s growing numbers.

Heatherbank Primary School has been around since 1974 and has grown to accommodate 140 children, aged three to eleven. Heatherbank Primary is also a registered NPO aimed at helping underprivileged children from Walmer Township.

“KICK is a NPO that was formed in 2006 to impact the lives of children in South Africa. We aim to build four classrooms for Grades 4 to 7,” said Heatherbank Primary School’s Principal Ellen Lovemore.

“In 2016 we managed to raise funds through KICK and the German Diplomatic Mission to build two of these classrooms. We still need to build two more and an ablution block by 2020,” said Lovemore.

Paul Manson, the principal of Varsity College Port Elizabeth, added, “We recently refurnished and upgraded our IT labs on campus to accommodate our growing student numbers. We have a close association with Heatherbank Primary School and were aware that the school was expanding, so what better place to give our tables and chairs to than this great school.”

“The donation of desks and chairs will be used in our new computer lab and four new classrooms. We are delighted with our modern desks as they complement our new classrooms,” Lovemore concluded.
