Right now our most urgent need is for a premises. The buildings we have occupied are now being taken away and we feel it is time to move on and into our own premises. Below is a letter written by Stephan Vosloo (Chairman of the Governing Body) explaining our current situation.
I hate writing letters like this one but circumstances often require that we overcome our dislikes.
This is a plea for help on behalf of our Christian school that we founded 24 years ago, called “Harvest Christian School” ...

The school really is in need. If you would like to support the school in any way, please contact us. You can
There are also other ways of getting involved in the school.
1. Care for a child:
We have many children who, although may be taken care of physically and have their fees paid, just need some special attention. Things to make them feel special. Money is needed to buy these students different things. One is the two students in matric who cannot afford to get a matric jacket. They have worked so hard to get to this year and we would really like to be able to send them off with a reminder of their experiences. Money in this fund will be used at the discretion of the school counselor to really just spoil some of the needy students.
2. Feed a child
We have some students who are receiving lunch at school - sometimes the only food they have for that day. In addition, we have families that are barely making it and surviving on a government grant. We would like to be able to feed these families by buying essential groceries for them once a month.
3. Educate a child
Some of our most promising students come from families that desperately want a good education for their children, but reach a point where they can no longer afford the fees. Some of these then receive a partial sponsorship from the school, where they pay part fees and the school covers the rest. Others are on full sponsorship. We really need people who are willing to pay for these children and provide them with an education.
