The Benevolent Fund was established to purchase essential items which a family cannot afford. Typically disbursements are for items like school uniform or stationery. Occasionally funds are allocated to pay towards a costly assessment (e.g. by an educational psychologist or occupational therapist) if a family cannot afford it. When the school was closed because of the COVID-19 lockdown, we supported many families by providing data for online lessons, as well as grocery and electricity vouchers. On return to school, we also provided essentials such as face masks to those who could not afford them.
