Orphan can finish grade

2015-07-28 15:38

After experiencing tragedy there is a silver lining for a girl orphaned by a blaze in Lavender Street in July.

All her school needs will be seen to for at least rest of the year, so that the 10-year-old will be able to complete Grade 4.

Subforum 3 has taken on her material school needs. It officially handed over school clothing on Monday last week.

The subforum says it will look into its options for next year, but will at least make sure she has everything she needs until the close of this schoolyear.

The subforum encourages other subforums to adopt a needy child to alleviate strain after tragedy.
