Outreach - Easter Egg Collection

As Easter approaches, we are excited to continue to support the boys and girls of St Paul’s Primary School in Bo Kaap and deliver a wonderful gift of chocolate goodies at the end of term! Boys are encouraged to bring a strip or box of marshmallow eggs during these last 3 weeks of term. Collection baskets are ready in the library! Boys can hop on down and place their donation any morning before school or lunch break. We are proud that some-bunny special in our community has an Easter treat coming their way very soon.
