Big Smiles and grateful hearts at Adolph Schauder Primary School

Port Elizabeth - The Grade 3, 4 and 5 learners of Adolph Schauder Primary School were very happy to receive stationary and school sock packs from some staff and students of The IIE’s Varsity College Port Elizabeth.

The recent handover was as a result of the VC Cares (student volunteer body) committee and VC Voice student body’s O’Week “Give Back” station on campus which provided students with the opportunity to package either a stationary pack or school sock pack with a personalised note of encouragement for the learners.

The Grade 3 and 4 classes received the stationary packs while the Grade 5 classes received the school sock packs.

Says Earlene Jacobs, Head Student Services, The IIE’s Varsity College Port Elizabeth: “As a campus we aim to assist each grade with items that is needed or that can make a positive difference.

"Following the stationary and school sock drive which took place in February, The VC Voice student body along with the campus Student Information Centre (library) is running a book drive on campus for the month of March to collect 140 story books (English or Afrikaans) for the Grade 1 and Grade 2 learners of Adolph Schauder Primary School as we want to encourage reading from a young age and hopefully develop a love for reading”.

The IIE’s Varsity College 2020 Corporate Social Initiative is The Adopt a School Foundation. The Port Elizabeth campus has adopted Adolph Schauder Primary School.

The Adopt-a-School Foundation is a non-profit organisation that supports the creation and enhancement of a conducive learning and teaching environment in disadvantaged schools.
