Schoolchildren give blood to save lives
 
VICTORY PARK – Da La Salle Holy Cross College youngsters are enthusiastic about donating blood.

The South African National Blood Service (SANBS) visited Da La Salle Holy Cross College on 22 June for its annual blood drive donation that takes place every term.

Principle of the college, Atholl Murray said many of the schoolchildren, teachers and management staff donated blood in response to the service’s urgent call two years ago and has been hosting drives ever since.

Blood is especially needed due to the school holidays and a number of people will be travelling.

“The learners are encouraged to give of themselves, their time selflessly and enthusiastically in order to help their community and each other. This is achieved through various outreach and community service projects; to share the responsibility they have to the world. The learners also encourage each other to be the best person they can be and to develop a commitment of service to others,” said Murray.

He added that the schoolchildren are encouraged to strive to ensure that the rights of all are held sacred. The school also challenges other schools in the area to do the same for a good cause.

De La Salle Holy Cross College celebrated Clean Your Room Day recently – unsurprisingly great news for the parents.
The celebration, however, was not the best of news for hoarders and children whose rooms were unkempt.
 
Schoolchildren were asked to roll up their sleeves, clean their rooms and donate clothes and stationery to the college’s various outreach projects. This included toys and sports equipment for the college’s youth outreach projects as well as old cell phones, chargers and computers for the environment committee’s e-waste collection.
 
The names of everyone who contributed to this initiative were put into a lucky draw.
 
The teacher in charge of the environment committee, Liz van der Westhuizen thanked the community and Doppio Zero for their continued support of the committee’s initiatives.
 
“Our learners and their parents always give so generously and with open hearts to our various outreach and environment initiatives.”
