[simage=87,200,c,right,]The Tsogo Alumni Society introduces the first ‘Alumni Homecoming’ as an annual event that hopes to bring together alumni and start a tradition of getting together each year for an eventful day that starts with a general meeting and then proceeds to various activities. For 2010 – the Alumni Society felt it appropriate to start with a SCHOOL RENOVATION PROJECT given the poor state of Tsogo’s classrooms, offices and overall infrastructure. We are currently raising funds, sourcing donations for office equipment, desks & chairs, sourcing building material donations and skills for the Homecoming Day – we hope you’ll be able to assist with your financial donation or in any way possible (esp. painting & renovation skills) !
Saturday, 9th October 2010: HOMECOMING Day – Programme
The day will begin with an Annual General Meeting (AGM) which will allow your Executive Committee to report-back on the activities and state of the society over the past year and present a strategy for the coming one. It is hoped that the AGM will also enable alumni and those attending to render suggestions to the committee and also stand for nomination / election to the executive committee.

Main Tasks for Saturday 9 October
- School signage (Erecting new school signage donated by the Alumni Society in 3 key intersections and 1 in front of the school)
- Computer donations and IT upgrades (Checking, fixing and upgrading old computers, printers & fax machines (incl. software installations) The IT task will involve getting alumni in the IT field to have a look at some donated computers / equipment and figure out how they can be fixed / upgraded. The idea is then to get either the admin block / teachers to use them… or if they are too antiquated, then we may donate them to Mmashiko or a school nearby (even the primary schools) for their office blocks to use. It’ll be great if we can just get the computers to work as basic word processors for teachers / learners to start using.
- Classroom Renovations (Sourcing & Replacing Window Stays & Handles)(Replacing Classroom & Cupboard doors and handles) (Fixing broken classroom desksand charis), Replacing/Fixing notice boards, Replacing emergency signage, Repainting classrooms when needed)
- Office & Classroom Renovations (Source and/or Fix School Furniture)
We are still sourcing some material for the classroom renovations – so we need donations from alumni and/ or material sponsorships. So if you can assist (especially with material) with any of the above please inform us using the contact details below.During the week we will try and update you with what is still outstanding and if you can donate we encourage you to do. As you can see please bring old clothes to work in for the day.
