I am a desperate single mother, searching for a good school to send my son to.
I thought I would get in touch and tell you a bit of my story, I am a single mom of a 10 year old boy(grade 4), and am currently 6 months pregnant. A month ago I left my ex (the father of the baby) after numerous incidents of abuse (strangling, smacking, breaking my finger etc) so I now find myself in a difficult situation where I cannot find a job and therefore have no income. I am currently staying with my friend Michelle, also a single mom, who, out of the goodness of her heart took my son and I in, things are incredibly tight though as she also has 2 children, 1 of whom is autistic and needs a special school. My son was in a Christian school in Benoni but due to us having to flee from the abuse, we are now back in the Westrand.
I am struggling to find a job, being so far along, and have been battling to find a school for my son as all the government schools are saying they are full and to apply for next year.
Please I am asking from the bottom of my heart for help to give my son a great education, he is incredibly intelligent and has been through so much lately. I would just like to get him into a good school where he can start flourishing and stop thinking about all the drama and trauma he witnessed.
Your help would be very much appreciated.
