Buy a Brick Build a Home

Jaimie Black knew exactly who that young man was as she had also listened to the interview on the radio. She was so overwhelmed with excitement and inspired to help Wandile and his incredible cause that she decided to help him achieve his goal of building a home for a family. Jaimie was completely taken in by the vision of Ubuntu Design Group and their slogan “I am because you are”. Jaimie has a real passion for helping others and thrives on making a difference to the community she lives in. She particularly enjoys to see children smile and laugh and to know that she can help a family build a home and give them new opportunities. She believes in the ethos of Crawford; being caring and empathetic, respectful of each individual’s needs, dignity and rights.


As a result, Jaimie Black, with the help of her wonderful mom, Claire, have decided to start their own fund raising to help Wandile. Jaimie strongly believes that if everyone in Ballito could donate R100, the house will be built in no time.
We, at Crawford Preparatory North Coast, are extremely proud of Jaimie as she is a reflection of a true Crawfordian and represents everything we believe in. She is a true ambassador of our REACH Program. We look forward to following your progress, Jaimie.

Crawford North Coast Community drive

Our theme for our celebrations is that of giving back to the community. The Preparatory and Pre School joined together and collected clothing for those less fortunate than us. This was placed on an enormous wash-line that connected the two schools. Our excited pupils walked along Mongoose Drive to peg their clothing on the wash line and were excited to see that the activity was being videoed by a drone that flew overhead. All the clothing was collected later in the afternoon and will donated to those who are less fortunate than us. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our parents and pupils for their generosity.

We also had a sandwich marathon where all Grades made sandwiches and these were offered to all the Ground and cleaning staff  for lunch on the campus and then also distributed into the community.

Gears 4 Ears – Fundraising

Crawford Preparatory had the opportunity to host a water table for a very worthy cause.

Gears 4 Ears
Hearing is believing. Having established a committee who are fully committed to the fundraiser we agreed to carry on raising funds to assist other cochlear candidates and recipients, achieve a dream of being able to hear again.
The need for a cochlear is a stage where hearing aids no longer work for you. However the costs of the cochlear are in the region of R400k today, so very few people can afford to have the implant. We work with the Durban Cochlear Team in terms of who can be assisted. This team includes the Audiologist’s and the surgeons who perform this life changing operation.A cochlear implant is about restoring the gift of hearing.

 

Easter Egg Drive

Thank you to the many families that contributed towards the drive to achieve a 9000 marshmallow Easter egg goal! Mrs Hook collected and organised distribution to Osindizweni School, the I Care Foundation, LIV Village, Cottonlands Primary School, the Westbrook Old Age Village and the children’s ward at the Victoria Hospital. The group of children that represented the Grade 7 Leadership Programme assisted me willing and with Crawford pride. It was a pleasure to do a community service with this well-mannered group of young boys and girls. Well done Emma Luyt, Rentia Burger, Erin Scott, Matthew Blackmore, Tristan Fortman, Prahlad Dhawpaul, Rebecca Gengan, Nandi Zuma, Mayali Naidoo and Shayuri Naidoo.

A CRAWFORD COLLEGE NORTH COAST AND ENFORCE SECURITY INITIATIVE

Ballito residents and Crawford College North Coast students Deryn Burns and Courtney Fitchat have been “extremely humbled by the kind hearts of the people who have gone the extra mile to support us” in our endeavour to assist the orphaned children of Mr Moses Makhoba, the Enforce Reaction Officer who was murdered in the course of carrying out his duties in the Ballito commercial district.  Having heard of the plight of young Msawenkosi (7) and Ayanda (13) who had lost their mother last year on News24, they immediately decided that they wanted to assist them in any constructive manner that they could.

Initially they appealed to their family, friends and fellow students at Crawford College North Coast for donations of food, clothing and money.  After a positive and affirming response from this inner circle they decided to use social media to reach a wider audience so they posted their plea on Facebook.  This resulted in an effective response from Radio Life & Style who invited them for a few interviews at which the idea of a community concert was developed by Dave and Michael Charles.  Supported by Ms Vanessa Neyt (Deputy Principal at Crawford College North Coast) the community concert attracted a generous audience thanks to the numerous artists that performed on the night in aid of the Makhoba Charity initiative.

Throughout this charitable and selfless journey they have been supported by Enforce with both financial and legal support.
