School - Take your Seat Fundraising
fundraising committee for the Take your Seat campaign have set the end
of March as deadline for the raising the money for the first of the
capital projects, which is the Spectator Stand and functions pavilion.
I think we all agree that the seating compared to our rival schools is
not adequate. The functions venue will also be used by Old Boys for the
after match functions, school events and dinners, plus as an assembly
venue for one of the day boy houses. At present we have raised R1.2
Million Rand and the school through the Building and Development Fund,
will contribute R3.5 Million. We require R7 Million. We appeal to all
Old Boys who are in a position to help keep SACS competitive with our
rival schools in terms of facilities, to please consider a donation.
Details of various ways in which to donate, please follow this link - http://sacsrugby.com/projects/
- you will also find a list of those individuals and families who have
kindly donated to the fund.
