Monday 13 November - Edu Fun Grade 3 Christmas Party

Thank you Tracy from AKA Sorority Inc. who will be sponsoring and providing the lunch again. This is a great help!

- if you have any ideas for small gifts or have contacts to donate 180 of the same item (small toy or sweet), please let us know.

As we have 60 more kids this year, our funds are more limited due to providing stationery and printing for the actual weekly lessons.

We are still hoping to get a book for each learner donated from Exclusive Books.

If you are in a position to make a small donation towards the year end function our bank account details are listed below. If you can put "Xmas party" as the reference.

Account Name:  Edu Fun.

General Needs - FEP students
Smart phones, laptops and toiletries are items that are needed by most students. It is difficult to get second hand lap tops as they are often destroyed to protect confidential data and software. If you're able to access working lap tops where the hard drives have been removed, we will still be able to use them as buying a hard drive is cheaper than buying a new lap top.




Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.


Thank you
Jenny
