HILLCREST Corner opened their hearts last week and gave back to the community by donating their Pirates Cove jungle gym to Gillitts Primary School.

Opened in 1953, Gillitts Primary School is located in Stockville Valley. With over 60 years of guiding young minds and uplifting those in the Stockville Valley area, Gillitts Primary School is a pillar of the community. The school has grown in leaps and bounds since 2013 and this is largely due to the outstanding commitment of headmistress Arti Jadoo and her dedicated teaching staff.

On Tuesday 22 November, Hillcrest Corner representatives visited Gillitts Primary School to install the Pirates Cove jungle which has already become incredibly popular with the children.

Jadoo said: “We extend our heartfelt thanks to Hillcrest Corner for their kind sponsorship. Having a large number of pupils in a grade R class restricts their movement and play which is fundamental to their growth and development, so this sponsorship is truly a blessing.”

The school is currently in need of support after a recent electrical storm. Any building services or assistance in helping replace the computers and repair the school’s roof, both of which were damaged as a result of the storm, would be greatly appreciated.

“We welcome any form of assistance in the form of donations, either for the school or for the Stockville community. We are also currently looking for assistance with concreting some parts of the school,” said Jadoo.

Hillcrest Corner is proud to have been able to give back to an institution which has been an integral part of the community and hopes to be able to make more contributions in the future.
