Our SACS campus has thankfully not been directly affected by the catastrophic fire on Table Mountain and parts of Newlands. We have been on high alert since this morning and watched in awe and with some trepidation, the non-stop heroic work of the helicopter pilots and firefighters of our city. These efforts continue unabated as reports are received of devastating destruction at UCT and other nearby areas. A drop in the wind has put our campus out of immediate danger. We will continue to monitor the situation and update you should there be a change to the current status.
At this stage school will continue as per normal tomorrow morning.
The School-Days programme enables you to raise education funds for SACS, simply by shopping at School-Days Partners. You’ll still earn your normal retailer loyalty points too! Money raised will be used to refurbish classrooms at SACS.
You can choose to support your school, Adopt-a-School Foundation and/or your family - at no cost to you. You’ll also benefit from exclusive member discounts and promotions. Log onto our website www.schooldays.co.za and register.
