Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Monument Park High School Choir was started in 2015 under the leadership of Ms Christine Bam.
They have exceeded the expectations of such a young, new choir. Their achievements in the last year have been phenomenal:
• A performance in the V&A Waterfront Arena with The Ebony Choral from America
• Tygerberg International Eisteddfod 84% (Gold)
• Helderberg Eisteddfod 90% and winner of category
• ATKV new comers – Silver
• Artscape Schools Art Festival – participants and then invited to be in the Gala Evening (12 schools from 240 schools were chosen to take part in the Gala Evening)
• National Eisteddfod of South Africa – Diploma winners(Highest Achievement)
This has resulted in the invitation to participate and perform in England as well as Wales, in the Llangollen International Eisteddfod.
As a result of the above achievements, hard work and dedication from the students, as well as the invitation received, we are looking to send +/- 60 students on tour - some of which have never left the area in which they grew up - the local informal settlements.
We as parents have several projects on the go to help raise the funds:
Ladies High Tea - attended by 120 ladies
'Potjiekos' competition (make a pot of food in a black pot on an open fire)
Christmas Carol evening
Shadow waitors - choir members help waitors at our local Spur for the evening, thereby earning a percentage of the sales for the evening.
