The Wynberg Campus of Schools announced in 2021 that as part of its commitment to give back to healthcare workers, it will be donating funds raised by the four campus schools to create an outdoor break area for the staff of Victoria Hospital. The four Campus Heads, Mrs Dee Cawcutt (Wynberg Girls Junior – WGJS), Mr Cedric Poleman (Wynberg Boys Junior – WBJS), Dr Jenn Wallace (Wynberg Girls High – WGHS) and Mr Jan De Waal (Wynberg Boys High School – WBHS), met with CEO of Victoria Hospital, Mr Jonathan Vaughan for the official hand over on Tuesday, 2 November 2021. Between the four campus of schools, an amount of over R60 000 was raised. “We are community-based schools,” said Ms Cawcutt, spokesperson for the campus. “And service is one of our most important pillars. The medical fraternity has made countless sacrifices for others over the last year. Saying a small thank you by building reflective spaces for staff to use as a lunch break is the least we can do, on behalf of all our staff, learners and families,” she said. Mr Vaughan asked those over 12 years of age, and more so those over the age of 50, to get vaccinated. “Take the message home and tell your friends. The only way we can get through this pandemic is to get vaccinated; it’s our biggest weapon and the best way to keep people out of hospital,” he said.
Also in attendance were the four service pillar heads of the schools, Malika Salie at WGJS, Jessie Theys at WBJS, Jenna-Morgan Mouton at WGHS and Sven Borgstrom at WBHS along with Jenna-Morgan Mouton, Shalom Masenga, Raaniyah Domingo, Nick Horn and Dhanyal Louw.
