WEMBLEY College prides itself not only on academic success, but also on creating a school ethos with community outreach at its heart. Our Grade 5 pupils visited Letcee at the old Barracks last month, on 18 July, as part of their 67 minutes towards making a difference on Mandela Day. Letcee can feed a child for R200 a month. These projects uplift whole communities. What a privilege for Wembley College to be part of this amazing organisation. Miss Van der Merwe took tinned food and second-hand books which had been collected by our senior primary pupils. Grade 5 pupils enjoyed their time with the children. The boys played games while the girls enjoyed showing their love to the children. Our Grade 6 and 7 pupils were part of a clean-up project at the school in the first term. Mrs Van Rooyen organised the collection of litter around the grounds. Pupils were also taught about alien plants which have begun to invade the school property. Alien vegetation refers to plants that are not native to a country and have been brought into a country from another place. It is a big threat to our plant and animal biodiversity. Pupils helped to rid the school of some of their illegal, alien plants.
