Varsity College Port Elizabeth helps learners at Adolph Schauder Primary School

Port Elizabeth - Students and staff of The IIE’s Varsity College Port Elizabeth came together to help make a difference to the learners of Adolph Schauder Primary School during the campus’ recent CSI week.

The week kicked off with a Donut Monday where learners and teachers from the Adolph Schauder Primary School were treated to a sweet treat of donuts.

This was followed by the installation of a donated JoJo tank from The IIE’s Varsity College to assist the school with drinkable water and to help them save water.

Next was the painting of a mural on the schools’ entrance wall and Sports Club members and the IIE Diploma in Sports Development Management students handing over sporting equipment to encourage learners to participate in sport.

The CSI week ended off with staff, students, various VC Cares, VC Social and VC Voice committee members and Sports Club members spending time with the learners and playing various games using the donated sports equipment.

“The aim of the initiatives completed during our CSI week was to assist the school with a few of its challenges in order to make the learning environment more conducive.

"We would like to thank our staff and students for all their support throughout the year in helping make our CSI week a success for the school," said Earlene Jacobs, Vice Principal Student Services The IIE’s Varsity College Port Elizabeth.

The Adolph Schauder Primary School is The IIE’s Varsity College Port Elizabeth’s adopted school for 2019. The Adopt a School Foundation is The IIE’s Varsity College’s 2019 Corporate Social Initiative.

Earlier in the year staff and students also renovated the Foundation Phase playground by giving it a new coat of paint, upgraded the play area as well as paint educational games onto the cement ground to help stimulate learning in a fun way.

“The campus CSI impacted me positively - having grown up in Schauderville, it was nice to see the campus help the school and give the leaners something to look forward to. I’m glad that I could be a part of it and I am privileged to be part of the 2019 VC Cares committee, our campus student volunteer committee. It has given me the opportunity to help make an impact within the community in many ways,” said Demi George VC Cares Chairperson (3rd year IIE Bachelor of Arts).
