Brackenhurst Primary has “Water Wednesdays”

WE COLLECTED WATER: Two learners, Ledin Hinnings from Grade Seven B and Tristan Fernandes from Grade Six B, donated water and enjoy not wearing uniforms. Well done.

BRACKENHURST Primary School, Alberton’s first primary school fully adapted to e-learning, is having “Water Wednesdays” where they collect water for Cape Town weekly until the end of February.

OCEAN AT OUR FEET: David Lawrenz poses with some of the learners as if they have an ocean at their feet.

The RECORD visited the school on the morning of February 7 and was pleased to see hundreds of two and five-litre bottles standing in the school’s assembly square. These were donated by learners of the school and their families.

According to David Lawrenz, a tech teacher and sports activity co-ordinator at the school, even more water was collected in the previous weeks. As a reward for the learners who helped collect water, they get to have a non-uniform day.

COLLECTING A DAM: All these water bottles might almost fill up a dam – wow!

Well done to everyone who donates water to those in need – please keep it up.
