John’s Chair

With our “Acts of Random Kindness” money boxes, our girls and staff were able to see a dream come true. After 8 months of collecting coins in our ARK money boxes, the coins were counted and deposited at the bank.  We found we had enough money to reach our goal. On 25 October, John, a very special friend and a Grade 11 student from The Hope School, received his new electric wheelchair in Assembly. We thank all the girls, families and staff for their amazing efforts in raising the R25 000 through the ARK collections. Thank you Ashleigh Magner (Class of 2006) for giving John’s dream its wings. THANK YOU HOPE SCHOOL for giving John life. Thank you to Adele Kokt from FNB and Karen Rodger from G4S for their generosity during all the money transactions – because of them we were able to put all the money collected towards John’s new chair.
