Pizz school lunches update October 2022

School lunch continues to be something HATW enjoys being able to support the school with.

The great thing about the provision is that everyone gets it, we do not offer to some but not others. It is a time to be able to come together sit down and have a chat with your friends whilst all being able to have the same meal.

We would like to be able to enhance what we offer the children, currently to ensure 600 children get lunch every day, a warm porridge made up of mealie meal is made up and is quite a task. Sometimes, sugar and groundnuts are added to this. We would like to make more additions to the lunches. Locally they have fishponds and grow some vegetables, but it would be good if the local community could expand this further to ensure lunch was more varied and balanced. The fishponds are yet to be harvested; they are currently growing the fish so that they can breed from them. With some luck fish will be an addition to the lunches in the near future.

With the development of the vegetable garden at the middle site, I hope that more vegetables and relishes can also be added to school meals. The children greatly enjoy looking after the crops here and with running water readily available at the site, this really helps.

As Pizz is currently undergoing a transition to move from a private school model to become a community school, we hope the increased community involvement will support the school lunches programme and engage more people to help out as volunteers whether it is in the garden or the kitchen.

Thank you for your continued support.
