Covid Care Campaign Aims to Raise $2 Million Target Launched

The SAHS Foundation supported by the SAHS Parent Teacher’s Association and Old Girl’s associations and chapters in Jamaica, USA, Canada and the UK has launched Covid Care – a $2 Million fundraising drive for the School.

Funds raised will be directed in two areas – to support the required Distance Learning & Teaching now in effect which continues through to the end of the academic year and Student Welfare. School will not reopen until September 1.

Reduction in rentals for the School’s facilities – the hall, classrooms, pool, etc. the loss of canteen concession fees, fundraising events cancellations, have resulted in a budget shortfall. The School needs additional funds to meet existing and new expenses – support to students and teachers for distance learning (data plans and increased utility bills) and student welfare.

In April and May, the School’s Guidance Department identified some 218 girls and some parents in need during this crisis. The PTA’s Love Drive reached out to parents, Old Girls and the Foundation for help. The Guidance Department and the PTA packaged and distributed food items and sanitary products which were collected at the School by parents. Support needs to continue through June and July.
