In response to an eye-catching photo in the Knysna-Plett Herald, we put out an appeal to our Oakhill families to please help by collecting and sending in second hand shoes. Before long we had an amazing assortment of good second hand shoes in all colours, types and sizes! Two hundred and thirty-two pairs of shoes were collected and made a ‘shoe line’ measuring forty-two metres! The drive was run by the Grade 2’s and supported by the entire Oakhill Prep School.
“We hope that we have made a difference – even in a small way – and that children just like us also have warm feet as they walk to school…”
