Our Wishlist

Any materials that you can donate from the following wish list will be much appreciated:

School Building

We are growing fast and will need to move our premises soon! Anyone who knows of premises in or around Paarl to help us build a new school please get into contact with us!

 Teachers

Any financial contributions towards the salary of BSA’s teachers and assistants would be greatly appreciated! We are a registered PBO organisation and therefore your contributions are tax deductable.

Furniture

We want to put artificial grass on our playground (+-20m x 8 m), heaters, photocopier, spandex hammock, frog swing, vacuum cleaner.

Educational materials

Stationery – e.g. play dough, paint, printer ink, pens, etc.

Reading book series (Gr.1-7) in Afrikaans and English.

Electronic equipment

Our dream is to have an interactive white board set up in each classroom. This will help the children to learn more visually and make learning easier for them!

The Apple ipad  has amazing apps available for Autistic learners – they help with communication, social skills and have wonderful motivational software available. It would be a dream come true if a company can donate an ipad for each child (we currently have 20 enrolled learners).

Transport

Mini bus and funding for a responsible driver to help our learners who travel from Stellenbosch, Kraaifontein, Tulbagh, Wellington and Worcester every day.

Sponsor a school uniform or school fees

Not all of our children can afford their school uniforms. You can sponsor a child’s summer and winter school uniform for approximately R500. Monthly school fees are R600 per child.

Any financial contribution towards needs-specific materials used to foster independence and self help skills amoungst our learners are always needed.

Volunteers

We welcome any volunteers to help us during the week. Send an email to bolandautism@gmail.com and tell us how you want to get involved. We invite long term volunteers (3-6 months) or volunteer for an hour per week.
