Grade 4 teacher Nicola Killops, who runs the school’s Facebook page, took the initiative to ask Facebook followers and families to donate items and support the good cause.
The excited youngsters were happy to see exactly how much they along with the community were able to collect and eagerly carried the load from the bus into the office.

It is a group effort to unload the vehicle.

“I thought it was a great idea to use the platform we have to receive donations for the poor victims that are suffering so terribly in Knysna,” said Killops.

Her plea went out to the school’s network and the surrounding community and within two days, Killops’ classroom was full to the brim with contributions.
The schoolchildren learned a valuable lesson in giving and helping others.

The excited Grade 4s are happy to help others.

“They were able to see that giving is not just about receiving applause but that it is the right thing to do.”
The donated items will be delivered to the victims in Knysna soon.
