SITE #5: Conville Primary School
The school is located in Conville, Thembalethu, in George. The school has approximately 1600 learners (Grade 1 to Grade 7). The school is a public primary school and as a Section 21 school and is accordingly allocated some financial funding by the department but remains responsible for ordering stationery, textbooks, paying water and lights accounts and undertaking their own maintenance. It is a no fee institution. Community fundraising to bring in additional income into the school is not a possibility, given the low socio-economic bracket within which the community falls. The school relies on external funding for the upkeep of the school.
There is an existing food kitchen that feeds all the learners 2 meals per day. The intention of the school is to invest in a vegetable and fruit garden that can support most of the vegetable needs of the school kitchen.
