Mandela Day Christmas in July has been extended

Due to parent request we have extended the dates for our 67 MINUTES FOR MANDELA DAY “We CAN do this” project to the end of August 2021. We encourage all Brescia pupils/families to donate items of canned food (beans, pilchards, chickpeas, lentils, etc.) and/or a nicely wrapped NEW BLANKET (your decision as to size or fabric). The collection tables will continue to be in the main PYTCHLEY street parking lot ONLY from 07h30 until 16h00 each day.  Please do not interact with anyone else in the car park and do not expect our security personnel to take these products out of your car. As pupils return onsite, they are also able to drop these items off at the various reception points, with Mrs Pininski (PS) or Mrs Iacovitti (HS) or at the Counselling Dept. We have also extended access to the KARRI app for donations should you prefer to support the project this way. Many churches are also running soup kitchens, first aid stations, blanket donations etc. Obviously parents are free to support any other community based organisations of their own choice too, but here are links to well-established NPO’s we know are doing sterling work across various communities:


Corona Care SA:


FoodForward: Welcome to FoodForward SA

Gift of the Givers to assist with Covid19 relief as well as disaster related matters:

Kind regards, stay safe and healthy – together we CAN do this!
