Heatherbank Pre & Primary School educates children primarily located in Walmer/Gqebera Township.
The parents of these children are required to make some financial contribution. They receive regular feedback and are mentored regarding their parental responsibilities.
By making an early intervention (age 4-6) at the pre-school, and then following through with a quality primary education, the Heatherbank Schools uplifts children to the standard of better resourced schools in the more developed areas of Port Elizabeth (Nelson Mandela Bay).
The school has classrooms and a playground and basic toilets.
Our goal is to raise enough money to build an drama hall for the learners. It will serve as a small arts & culture space wherein vulnerable youngsters can find an outlet for their anguish in exploring their artistic capabilities, in the form of art, drama, music, prose etc.

The school is located in Nelson Mandela Bay.
