An Outreach Portfolio is managed by the Grade 7s. All the children of the primary section are involved in the projects from time to time, collecting books, paper and pencils, making sandwiches, reading to children and helping where they can.

Currently, the children’s main outreach projects are Jo’s School, a Montessori preschool in the Vrygrond Community Centre for children at risk , and Paws 4 a Caws, which is part of the world-wide Roots & Shoots organisation founded by Professor Jane Goodall for sustainable service towards animals, plants and the environment.  ‘Paws 4 a Caws‘ focuses on fundraising and collections for food for the stray animals in Vrygrond and is managed by the Grade 6 children.




Auburn House responds to the calls of the greater Cape Town community when needs arise due to local disasters, and appeals are made to all primary children and families when collections are made.
