EVERY year, thousands of children across SA and in Namibia receive a shoebox filled with gifts from Santa Shoebox donors.This year, Port Shepstone High School contributed 131 of the 669 boxes pledged and received for the South Coast area. These boxes are to be distributed to underprivileged children on the South Coast. The South Coast community members have been amazing in their support of this national project.The school also hosted their TADA (Teenagers Against Drug Abuse) Committee’s annual de-stress hamper raffle. The draw, which is held annually in the fourth term, serves as a good fundraiser for future programmes aimed at promoting an anti-drug culture at Sheppie High and in the community.Port Shepstone High School’s TADA promotes a drug-free environment within the school and community through awareness and education about drugs and their effects.At the beginning of the year, the school holds an Awareness Week in which members of the South Coast Recovery Centre share their testimonies on their struggle with addiction. The aim of this is to warn learners against the use and abuse of illegal substances. Throughout the year, talks, meetings and presentations, take place to support the goal of a drug-free environment.Each year, local businesses wholeheartedly support this cause and donate generously to the drive by giving vouchers, donations, and items to fill our hampers. Thank you so much again for your continued support and generosity.— Supplied.
