My name is Constance Strydom (32). I am setting up a fundraiser for that school that I work at - Monument High School. The Hendrik Potgieter boys' residence is in desperate need of an upgrade and I would like to help them.
Monument High School (Monnas) is busy getting our school ready for memorable centenary celebrations in 2021!
One of our projects is to upgrade the Hendrik Potgieter boy's residence (officially opened in 1949) to a standard that compares with the best and in which we can proudly host a new generation of “Monumentare”.
The cost of maintaining and upgrading such a residence is very high and there is no contribution from the education department.
Herewith more information on the boy’s (HP) residence:
1. Rooms: 15
2. Number of boys who can be accommodated (more or less): 55
3. The residence is the house of Grade nine, ten and eleven boys.
We plan the following upgrades:
1. New built-in beds, mattresses, cupboards, doors and study tables
2. New tiles in each room and corridors;
3. Upgraded bathrooms;
4. A recreational room
5. New entrance front door for the HP Residence;
The cost per room is R20 000 which also allows for unforeseen expenses.
A full sponsorship includes the following:
1. The room will be named after the donor (s);
2. A photo or description (history) of the donor (s) will be framed within the room.
There are also a number of underprivileged learners in the residence who need the community's help and support. Any company or individual who would like more information before donating is welcome to contact us for more information. There is a tax benefit available to donors in terms of Section 18 of the Tax Act. Donations can also be applied to an improved B-BBEE status.
