Three blazers to be worn at choir were handed over yesterday (13/11/12) to three grade 8 learners from CM Vellem Higher Primary School in Grahamstown. This donation was made by the VG High School Representative Council of Learners, and the money was raised during a third term market day. CM Vellem learners are very active awarenet users and the VSA suggested them due to their motivated participitation during awarenet sessions.
VGHS (a former Model C school) and CM Vellem HPS (an underprivileged school) established their good relationship during the past year, in which learners regularly collaborated in projects about different topics, such as music and science. The learners got to know each other in an online space called awarenet and subsequently also met in person, gave presentations to each other, went on outings together and presented to the SciFest audience. This is not just outreach, this relationship is based on mutual learning and interest in each other.
We congratulate all the learners for their motivation to learn and be engaged. The three learners from CM Vellem thanked VGHS for the donation with a song, which was recorded and published on awarenet for all other users to watch, listen and comment.
