For two decades the Mayor’s Christmas Appeal has been helping people who are going through tough times have a brighter Christmas by providing local families with hampers made up of donated goods.

We will once again be participating in the Mayor’s Christmas Appeal; all donations will be distributed to those that are less fortunate throughout the community.

Non-perishable food items and toys can be placed in the donation bin, which is located in the front office.

Community Pantry

Good day Parents,

I am super excited to tell you more about a new Community project that has started at our school this Term.

We have our own Community Pantry that is situated in the old Uniform Shop inside the Undercover Area.

The concept behind the Pantry is that families who are in need, can take any food items available. We also welcome and invite families to make a donation to our Community Pantry.

The Community Pantry is accessible to all Parents or carers of students attending Somerly Primary School and will be open on Wednesdays and Fridays from 8am – 9.45am and again from 2pm – 3.45pm. The door will be left open so that any parent or carer can go and help themselves to food items they need.

Seeing that all items are donated to the Somerly Primary School, we ask that before you take any items from the Pantry that you ensure that food items are in date and have not been opened or damaged.

If you would like to make a donation to the Community Pantry, you are more than welcome too.

SUGGESTED PANTRY DONATIONS are:

  • Meal kits: Macaroni and cheese, Pancake and Muffin mixes, canned Pasta meals, cup of soup, Instant Noodles
  • Variety of tinned fruits, vegetables, fish, beans, soup
  • Jars of sauces, spreads
  • Non refrigerated UHT milk and milk powder
  • Ready to eat snacks, muesli bars, crackers
  • Rice, oil, pasta, cereal, condiments, spices, tea, coffee
  • Dishwashing liquid, washing powder
  • Toiletries and personal care products such as soap, toothpaste, deodorant and sunscreen

*Please ensure that all donated items are sealed correctly and unopened, in good condition (no dents), not home-made or require refrigeration and are well within their use by/best before dates.

We are looking forward to any feedback from you with regards to this new project!

Have an awesome week!

Kind regards,

Marilize Basson
