Grade 8 Excursion

Grade 8 Excursion

Personal message

Queen’s Park High School is situated in the urban area of Woodstock, Cape Town. The school consistently achieves a matric pass rate over 95%.

However, our achievements do not reflect the dire needs of our pupils. The majority of our pupils are drawn from Cape Town’s impoverished township areas endemic to the apartheid era. Parents use a great deal of money on transport from these distant areas and most do not have enough to pay the school fees. Thus, all available funds go to utilities, teaching resources, payment of governing body teachers and building maintenance. There are no funds for the enrichment of the learning experience.

The school motto is `non scholae sed vitae’; not for school but for life. We need help to express this motto in the lives of the children. We wish to take them on an excursion that will allow them to:
• interact with other schools through sport
• learn leadership skills
• to foster loyalty to the school
• enrich their curriculum with relevant travel, games and activities.

The cost of the excursion is R75,000. We will be taking 105 children in total and three teachers. We will be asking the children to raise R 10,000. We ask interested parties to assist us with donations that will help us to realize this dream for our children.

All financial records in relation to donations will be available on request. We look forward to joining hands with contributors and achieving VICTORY over our constraints!
