Fulton School for the DeafKWAZULU-NATAL

Fulton School for the Deaf used their MySchool donations to purchase a motorised lawnmower that ensures their beautiful large fields are well maintained to host their league sporting activities. They also bought new sponge mattresses for their pre-school children to use for their mid-day nap.

Through ongoing support the donations received stretched a long way, and the school was fortunate enough to also purchase a variety of books and DVD’s for their library. These children benefit tremendously from visual learning, and this not only assists the pupils a great deal but also the teachers. 

In May 2010 Molelwane Primary School in Fafung Village outside Brits, North West Province, approached the MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet Fundraising Programme as a last resort to their desperate call for help. In September 2009, the school lost their roof in a terrible storm and has been operating without it since then.

Smiles for our new computer roomAt an official handover event held on 3 February 2011, and under the auspices of Principal, Mrs JR Mngadi, the learners of Mariannhill’s Junior Primary School saw the opening of their very own computer resource centre thanks to the MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet fundraising initiative.

Making use of computer hardware donated to the school by corporations in the area, MySchool spent in excess of R40,000 to turn a converted cargo container into a functional facility for Mariannhill’s learners.

They can!Together with organizations from around the world, the International White Cane Safety Day is celebrated annually through different events. The International White Cane Safety Awareness Day Fun Walk, run and hosted by the SA National Council for the Blind, was a great success and MySchool donated R100 per registered entry. The Council, in turn, promised to use these funds to make white canes more readily available to needy blind people for whom the cane is not only a vital tool for their daily lives, but also a symbol of their independence.
