Up with Downs gives back

Up with Downs gives back

GEORGE NEWS - The Up with Downs School (UWD) in Blanco filled shoeboxes with toiletry items and distributed them at the new Heatherlands High School on Thursday 19 January.
UWD teamed up with Anchor your Life, an American based non-profit organization, and identified a need for toiletries for some of the learners at the Heatherlands hostel. The learners at UWD collected toiletries and packed them into shoeboxes that they decorated and personalised for the hostel learners.
The visit to Heatherlands High School which is situated on the grounds of the old Die Bult School in Langenhoven Street brought back memories, as the UWD started out in 1999 in a small classroom at the school.
Up with Downs is thankful to Lodewyk Meyer, principal of Heatherlands High, the staff and the learners for the warm welcome and for presenting UWD an opportunity to build a new relationship by giving back to the local community.

Voting Poll
Finance minister Pravin Gordan says they considered a VAT increase for the 2017 budget, but that an increase should be fine-tuned so that poor people do not have to pay more. Are you willing to pay increased VAT on so-called ‘sin-items’ (alcohol, cigarettes, chocolates, confectionary, certain cuts of prime beef etc) and luxury goods so that basic items can be exempt or remain at 14%?
Yes, the privileged has a responsibility to pay for the poor.

No, everyone, regardless of income, should contribute to the state coffers. There’s no such thing as a free lunch.
