My son is a student at the St Marys Catholic school in George South Africa. The school is funded by government but is only given the things they absolutely need.
My son Logan is fortunate because we are able to put him in a private school that would allow him to participate in the sports he is interested in but he absolutely refuses to leave his friends behind. Logan started grade R at this school and in our minds it was only a year before we would move him over to a private school, and it is now five years later and we are still not able to convince him to move.
My son is very interested in playing table tennis at school and a teacher has taken the initiative to start the program at school . I went out and bought him the bet and balls thinking that everything is in order until i went to see for myself how things were going. I felt very sad when i saw about fifteen children waiting in line to play with the four bets available , they had a table but no net but everyone was very eager to wait their turn.
After witnessing this i had a serious talk with my son explaining that he really doesnt have to struggle like this because the other school we want to send him to has so much more to offer .
Logan replied that he loves his school and he loves his friends and if i love him so much i should not look for a solution for him only but for a solution for everyone.
I love my son and i really would like to help him get this Table tennis team off the ground with new kit for everyone, and that is the reason we humbly ask for a small donation towards this project.
