Cordwalles Prep support Tekkie day

This term the Cordwalles Preparatory School boys’ supported Tekkie Day for the Pietermaritzburg Children’s Home by coming to school in civvies and wearing no shoes (yes, bare foot and experiencing how cold it is wearing no shoes early in the morning!) The boys generously donated a pair of shoes (used or new) for the cause and 450 pairs of shoes were collected. The money collected for wearing civvies to school will be donated to Pietermaritzburg Children’s Home, and the shoes collected will be donated to LIV Village and two other charities which the Grade 1 boys will visit shortly.
