Gratitude Celebration for our Partner Schools

By November 2, 2018 No Comments

It is events season at SBF! As usual we kicked off with our annual ‘Thank You Lunch’ for all our partner school liaisons, bursars, administration staff and all those making a contribution to assisting our scholars on a daily basis.

Beautiful Lunch set up at the Hout Bay Manor Hotel.

As is customary, the event was held on Friday, 26 October at the Hout Bay Manor Hotel in Hout Bay. Guests arrived happily and cheerily to a welcome drink and canapés, in keen spirit to spend the day with the SBF staff and get to mix and mingle with all the other school liaisons from our partner schools. For some, it was their first time attending the event as we have added on two new schools. Our new Executive Head of the Foundation Mrs Halli Manolakos-Tsehisi opened with a welcome to our guests and an introduction of herself, thanking them for all they do at the schools with the SBF scholars and extended the gratitude and appreciation from Dr and Mrs Struengmann! They were treated to some fine dining by the Hout Bay Manor while watching our Matric 2017 and SBF marketing video, which of course brought tears to most as they watched in appreciation for what the children have achieved.

We closed with a thank you to them as some had to return to marking and administration involved with the matric final exams and other school duties.

The SBF family can’t express enough how much we appreciate these individuals for their unquestionable commitment and dedication towards our scholars.

We Salute you!
