Ms Delshѐ Delport and Ms Adrienne Millner of the Good Hope Seminary Junior School came into studio to speak about the Good Hope Fundraising event. The school is situated at Vredehoek Avenue with beautiful views of Lions Head and Blouberg.
The school has as many as 469 children from Grade R to Grade 7
The school will be hosting an event called Summer Vibes. This event is in order to raise funds for the school. The Department of Education does assist with funds, by paying some of the schools educators’ salaries but then the school has to pay the rest of the educators.
The school is under Section 21 which means it is a fee paying school, so they rely on school fees to run the school.

The event will be on Saturday, the 27th of October, 2018 at 21 Vredehoek Avenue. It will start at 10:00 and end at 14:00.There will be a marching band as well as a variety shows called the ‘Vibiest Talent Show’ which will showcase some of the talent from learners.
There will be popcorn, chicken and salad sold, there will be face painting, a tea garden, a tuck shop, photo booth, and a rodeo ball.
This fundraising event aims at raising more than R50 000. The funds will be used for sustenance in terms of the building and facilities for the teachers like smart boards, because they only have one smart board at the moment.
Some of the difficulties the school faces includes parents not paying school fees on time, and trying to make sure educators are paid well and valued at the school. Also many of the children that attend the school, come from far, many are affected by transport strikes, and even arrive late with private transport, and parents of the children are not close by, so can’t come in for school meetings.
They don’t have too much social media presence but they are Good Hope Seminary Junior on Facebook.
