Mandela Day Collection Drive

Teacher Shelby and Class 1 collected food and blankets that went to TEARS for the animals that are in need of homes. Teacher Bonnie and Class 2 collected tin food as well as warm winter blankets for the Haven Night Shelter in Kalk Bay. Teacher Daniel and Class 3 collected breakfast cereal for the little children at Siyakhula in Masiphumelele. Teacher Belinda and Class 4 collected clothing items of all sizes for Let’s Help Each Other, to keep the people of Ocean View warm during these cold winter days. Teacher Candice and Class 5 collected food and blankets for D.A.R.G. in Hout Bay for the homeless fur babies that are waiting to be adopted. Teacher Sandra and Class 6 collected tinned food to feed both people and animals of Redhill. Teacher Fezile and Class 7 took beautiful posies that they had arranged to the elderly at Fish Hoek Retirement Homes.

Thank you to each family for supporting this drive. I am certain all those people and animals, who have received something from the collection drive, are grateful and feel blessed. These outreach events bring us together and create unity within our community.

Dear Animal Lovers of Imhoff Waldorf School –

Thank you all so much for your donation of food and blankets for the dogs, puppies, cats and kittens at Tears Animal Rescue. Our dogs and cats will be so happy that you chose them as the beneficiaries of your collection.

I saw in The Echo that all of Imhoff Waldorf collected for a chosen charity for Mandela Day; so thank you to EVERYONE who enthusiastically collected for all these good causes, each class choosing a charity to support.

But a very special THANK YOU to the class who chose TEARS Animal Rescue as their charity. Choosing an animal charity is such a great choice, as domesticated companion animals like dogs and cats need the kindness of people. Your kindness and generosity have really benefited the Tears animals in our care.

Thank you so much.

With love to you from all the animals at Tears Animal Rescue.








As part of the Mandela Day collection drive Class 4’s collected clothing. They welcomed Mel from “Lets Help Each Other” in Ocean View, an organisation which focuses on helping the community, to hand over the bags of clothing. Mel greeted the children warmly and spoke about the different projects the organisation is involved in and expressed his gratitude for the contributions.








Class 7 spent time at a home for the elderly. The children each presented an older person with a small bunch of flowers. There were smiles all round and a few thankful, heartfelt tears.
