It has been three months since Hermanus High School hosted its second Gentlemen’s Evening, and the school is extremely grateful for everyone’s support in making this fundraising evening the success that it was.
The funds raised at the event amounted to R210 000. Due to this generous contribution, the school was able to embark on, and complete, several projects.
Learners’ Quads (Total cost: R300 000)
The first quad at the school has been upgraded, and the aim is to also upgrade the boys’ quad by the end of the year.
Sports Pavilion (Total cost: R310 000)
The sport’s pavilion was in dire need of renovation. With a portion of the funds raised at the Gent’s Evening, the school was able to repaint the walls, fix and replace some of the seating and build a new wall at the back. The plan is to extend the existing facility in order to accommodate all Hermanus High’s learners. The pavilion can currently seat around 500 learners and with the new 2020 intake, there will be 1 000 learners in the school.
Cricket Facilities (Total cost: R285 000)
New cricket nets have been ordered and the school looks forward to receiving them before the end of the year. They are still in need of boundary ropes, cages and a new pitch, but were not able to get these for the current season.
Hermanus High School would not be able to reach the success it does without the support of the community. Should you wish to become involved in any of its projects, please contact 028 312 3760.
