Duty of care

Mama Sue and assistant social worker, Uncle Ronald,  hosted a friendly gathering of parents and guardians of the youngsters recently given free places in our school on our Dr Danwata Scholarship Scheme.
The scholarships, named in honour of the consultant oncologist who treated Mama Sue,  gives bright and determined children denied access to school because of financial hardship a chance to pursuit their dreams.
But with a scholarship comes responsibilities.
On Saturday, Mama Sue  and Uncle Ronald explained to the parents, guardians and students all about the scholarship scheme and what it involves.
They also outlined what is expected of the students and their carers, and  explained how important it is for the youngsters to have the involvement and encouragement of those who look after them outside school.
Mama then answered any questions they might have.
"It was a really good meeting, they are all such nice people," said Mama.
We desperately need more sponsors for these scholarship students. If you could help provide and education to give a child a bright future please contact
