HOLIDAYS
Please remember to use your Makro and My School cards over the festive season. Remember to swipe your card whenever you can as every swipe counts! You can even use your My School card when you shop at : Kalhari.com (SA’s largest online retailer), myschooltravel.co.za (flights, car rental, accommodation) and power24.co.za (prepaid electricity online or via mobile banking.) Remember to continue helping to save our world by recycling and don’t throw away your plastic bread tags. St Christopher’s School is collecting the plastic tags to raise money to purchase wheelchairs. Please collect all postage stamps, (cut the border around the stamps so as not to damage the edges of the stamps). The stamps are sold to big stamp wholesalers in the U.K who then sell to stamp dealers all over the world. The money is then given to Zumat. Zumat (Zululand Mission Air Transport) provides emergency medical air services as well as flying doctors to clinics in the remote part of North-Eastern Kwa-Zulu Natal. Please also collect scrap paper for our Junior classes to use.
