Once again WBHS partnered with Living Hope for their annual Service Project. Two grade 8 classes were bussed to Capricorn Park on each day from the 29 September to the 2 October.
The task this year was to paint the exterior of the Living Hope Centre as well as the interior and exterior of a large container at Overcome Heights and to paint a house which desperately needed attention. By the end of the project the transformation was most rewarding!
All the necessary equipment was funded by the Grade 8 Market day, held earlier in the term. The boys gained first- hand experience of the challenges facing those who live in informal settlements and we hope that they will be inspired to get involved with future Service activities.
Thank you to the Grade 8 parents who worked so hard for Market day, to the boys for their enthusiastic involvement and to the teachers who accompanied groups out to Capricorn Park. Special thanks to Mrs Robbertze who photographed the boys at work on each day.
