TREES FOR ALL VOLUNTEER DAY
On 18th October 2016 St David's Marist Inanda donated trees, vegetables and herbs and volunteered time at Ekhukhanyesweni Primary School in Alexandra, Johannesburg. Pupils and teachers from Ekhukhanyesweni thoroughly enjoyed getting involved in planting the trees alongside the 42 St David's Marist volunteers who included Mr Ireland, Mrs Tangney, Mrs Kennedy, Mrs Smith, Ms Budd, Mrs Fisher-Gietzmann and Mrs Hutter, Grade 5H and ten Grade 11 boys representing the four School Houses. St David's also donated 50 additional trees to schools and cooperatives in Alexandra - bringing the total number of trees donated to 75, in honour of St David’s 75th Jubilee Year.
The attached report received from Food and Trees for Africa gives a summary of the planting day and tree distributions, plus includes thank-you letters from several of the Alex schools.
