The South African Red Cross Society (SARCS) has been involved in various humanitarian activities for over one hundred years since its inception, and it has always been necessary for it to raise funds to support these activities. In compliance with the National organisation's Policies & Procedures, our Hermanus/Overstrand Financial Statements & Accounts are audited both internally (by the South African Red Cross Society) and externally (by an independent firm of accountants).

"During the week 13-17 May we recognised the services of the Red Cross by Wearing something red each day. On Friday 17 May many dressed up as patients, doctors, nurses and fire men. Fiona wore her mother's Red Cross cape. Simone addressed the children at assembly on Monday about the activities of the Red Cross. Fines of R5.00 were paid for dressing up and over R500.00 were raised to send to the Red Cross." - Hermanus Private Pre and Primary School
