Calendars For Caring

Late last year an art competition was held at Hermanus Waldorf School with the theme – my favourite place. The school is situated in Hermanus, South Africa and serves the historically disadvantaged townships of Zwelihle and Mount Pleasant. Henry Schein Halas became involved through Educompass Children’s Charity Trust who we have been supporting for

  many years. Intended as a self esteem booster, the art competition was a huge success. We were honoured to be involved in choosing the winners whose artwork was turned into a 2011 calendar. For these children to see their artwork in print along with a photo and their story was a real treat. To know there were thousands of people all the way over in Australia who had their artwork hanging on their walls was absolutely amazing to them. The calendars were well received by our customers with many people calling to ask for extra copies. We will again produce a calendar in 2012 and may even produce two, as many charities would like to jump on board. If you did not receive a calendar and would like to please

Later this year we will be setting up a new library at the Hermanus Waldorf School and we look forward to hearing how our contribution has helped continue and enhance the learning opportunities for these special children.
