The girls from Riebeek College donated an astonishing R20 600 to the Uitenhage SPCA.

Through this project, as with their other charity related programmes, they again showed that Riebeek girls have a sense of community responsibility, compassion, empathy and a huge love of furry friends.

“This is such a special event and we have doubled what we normally give,” said Marilyn Woods, principal of Riebeek College Girls’ High School.

“Riebeek does not just give a once off donation, we have been giving consistently for many, many years,” said Marilyn Woods, principal of Riebeek College Girls’ High School.

In fact Riebeek’s relationship with the local SPCA dates back to the late sixties, when Betty Lynch started teaching at Riebeek College and made the SPCA a vital part of the school’s curriculum.

Natheera Sirkhotte and Lenaé Naidoo (head and deputy head of the Riebeek SPCA committee) handed over a cheque to the SPCA Uitenhage and district branch at a special assembly.

The annual cheque amounted to an amazing R20 600 collected through raffles, colouring-in competitions, cake sales and civvies days which were well supported by the enthusiastic learners of Riebeek.

  • The Grade 4 young ladies at Riebeek, under the wonderful guidance of educator Janet Skeates, an ex-Riebeek girl herself, are particularly adept at ensuring that the school looks after animals who cannot speak for themselves.
