Dawid learners share with the community

Giving to the community, ‘paying forward” and cultivating a culture of care, are some of the core values the LRCs at DBHS wish to instill in their learners.

The LRC take the lead in this regard every year with various initiatives as they strive to support especially the overwhelming number of under privileged, frail and vulnerable members of our society. These projects are seen especially by our senior learners as a very important part of their social responsibility.

The school also recently had the coin laying ceremony at the school on 3 June 2019 which involved the learners, teachers and parents, an amount of N$ 5000 was raised. A decision was taken to donate the funds to the Dagbreek School for the Intellectually Impaired. The said donation was gratefully received by the school principal, Mr. Du Plessis.

He mentioned that the donation arrived at the most opportune time, as they are in a process of changing and upgrading the old irrigation system, which due to the drought, needs adjustments to serve the different gardens.

Donating clothes

Clothes, non-perishable foods and other useful items were on a weekly basis collected from all classes on a weekly basis. The LRC members tirelessly sorted and packed these items with the greatest care. This time, the fortunate recipients were Hope Village and the

Moria Grace Orphanage Home in Katutura.

Hope Village which is situated in the dusty Lucia Street of Katutura’s Goreangab location continues to give hope to children with no homes. The shelter is home to 84 children who although being from different backgrounds have similar pasts of abuse, neglect and the loss of parents. The youngest child is eight months old while the oldest is 20 years old. Mrs. Coetzee, one of the LRC’s mom donated 50 snack parcels that were also distributed among 30 toddlers on the day we visit the Home.
