Perivale Primary School Perivale Primary School receives furniture donation


Perivale Primary School, situated in Lotus River, Cape Town, was recently the fortunate recipient of a Furniture Donation by Symphonia for South Africa.  The furniture was donated to SSA and it was decided that furniture that could not be used at the Symphonia office, would be donated to one of the schools involved in the Partners for Possibility Programme.

An email was sent out to the various schools and Perivale Primary School was the first to respond. On Tuesday, 11 June, 2013, the Principal, Denzil van Graan, collected the furniture from the Symphonia offices. He is very grateful for the donation, “The staff and SGB of Perivale Primary School wish to thank Symphonia for considering our school as the recipient for the furniture donation”.

The school intends to use the furniture in the administrative clerk and Principal’s office, the grade 7 resource room and in the library and foundation phase resource room.
