Baie dankie vir almal se samewerking in die verband

Huttie Groete


Show us you spring spirit

On Monday, 2 September, we would like to invite all Hutties to welcome spring with a Civvies day.

The cost involved will be R5. This can be paid by using the D6 app.

Robert Everson out to make a difference.

Oud-Huttie Robert Everson is besig met sy gemeenskapsdiens taak by die Newcastle DBV.

He visited the Hutties today to ask for assistance in the form of contributions of dog food, cat food and blankets.

All contributions can be left in the front office.

Ons glo hy kan op die Hutties staat maak om ‘n verskil te maak!

Mandela Day at Home Meah

The Grade 7’s celebrated Mandela Day by reaching out to Home Meah. During the week products were collected and the Gr 7 group really went all out. A huge amount of baby products and food was donated.

Today a group of pupils went to hand over the donations and spend some time with the babies and toddlers in Home Meah’s care. It was an enriching experience for the pupils and greatly appreciated by Home Meah!

67min well spent.
