Kildare Pre-Primary School appeals to the public to support their auction taking place on Thursday 2 August in their premises in Newlands.

Principal Heather Potter says this will be a fundraising event before the actual celebration of their birthday to be held later this year.

She says the funds will go towards the maintenance of the school and 10% will be donated to a charity.

Cathy Quibell, the school’s administrator, says there will be a variety of items on sale and lots of fun for everyone.

“It is important for us celebrate our 50th birthday and we count on our community to make it a success. We appeal to them to buy tickets and come in numbers so we can raise the much needed funds to help with maintenance of the school. We are an old school, offering services to the community of Newlands and surrounds and relying on fees and fundraisers to cover our costs. Any support will be much appreciated.”

She says the public will be able to also sell their own products at the auction.

Kildare Pre-Primary was founded in 1968 through the help of parents who saw the need for a pre-primary school in the neighbourhood. It is situated in the premises of the Anglican church in Kildare Road.

It has 92 learners, divided into four groups.

The school prides itself in promoting greening and other environmentally-friendly initiatives and for this reason, Quibell says, the school has won multiple awards.

Tickets are available at Quicket at R150 per person.
