Lenten Food Parcels

During Lent 2022, the children were encouraged to bring non-perishable food to school. HCPS partnered with a project in Lady Grey where community members exchange recyclable rubbish for food, clothing, toys, etc. The food collected at the school was donated to the project to help the poorer community members exchange rubbish for food.

Food parcels for the needy elderly

Learners are encouraged to bring 'poor money' to school which was used to buy food. Food parcels were made to distribute to poor, elderly people in the local community.
