chelo is starting the 2020 school year on a hugely positive note! Our Christmas Carol fundraiser held in December was a massive success, with enough funds raised to ensure we’re operating with a budget surplus.
To all new families who aren’t aware, chelo consists of a group of parents from HBIS who raise funds for our bursary students. We currently support 12 bright kids from less fortunate areas of Hout Bay to attend the school.
This year we welcome a new child to the fold, Langalam Lucas. Prospective students go through a rigorous academic and psychological screening process to ensure they will thrive at HBIS, and since his first interview, Langalam has “owned” HBIS, referring to it constantly as “my school.”
A warm welcome to the chelo family and school, Langalam and Mom, Nokuzola. We wish you every success!
