The Golden Chamber of Commerce, represented by Klippies Kritzinger, has taken the initiative to lead the fundraising project on behalf of the school to assist those learners and parents that will need funding. Please help us to bring some kind of relief to this, still shocked, school with all involved. Should you donate, please use DRIEHOEK as reference.
On Friday morning, 1 Feb 2019, a concrete slab above a corridor linking two blocks of buildings at Hoërskool Driehoek came crushing down on 26 learners. The incident happened a few minutes after 08:00, when learners were heading to their classrooms from the morning assembly.
Roydon Olckers, Jandré Steyn and Marli Currie lost their lives in the tragedy at the school on Friday. In total, 23 others were taken to various hospitals in the area. Sadly, Marnus Nagel, also passed away this morning. Many of the injured are still in hospital - some of them in critical condition, fighting for their lives.
The mother of one of the injured learners rushed to hospital to be with her son and was then involved in a serious car accident. She is also currently in hospital.
One of the deceased learners, Royden Olckers' last moment was sealed with one unselfish act, he didn’t think about himself at that moment, he only thought of others in that split second. This very special brave young man pushed two of his friends to safety in his last second on earth, and thanks to his heroic act, the 2 girls escaped without harm. Royden, we salute you.
We are thankful for every donation, no matter how big or small.
