SITE #9: New Dawn Primary School
New Dawn Primary School is located in New Dawn Park, Pacaltsdorp, in George. The school has approximately 1200 learners (Grade 1 to Grade 7) with an additional special needs class of 15 learners. The school is a public primary school and is well maintained on the limited funds provided by the Dpt. of Education. New Dawn Park was built in 2002 and as a Section 21 school, 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 required. The school is mostly absent of trees around the playing fields and outdoor areas.
There is an existing food kitchen that feeds the learners lunch. The intention of the school is to invest in a vegetable and fruit garden that can support the needs of the school kitchen.
The staff and learners of New Dawn Primary School & The Precious Tree Project Team Say THANK YOU WMO!
