Letters from Sponsors

Most STA students have a sponsor and they love receiving letters from them!


Most students at STA have a sponsor who pays for their school fees, because their own family can't afford to pay. The students write letters to their sponsors throughout the year to thank them and tell them a bit about themselves and STA. The students are always very excited to write letters to their sponsors and tell their family and friends the name of their sponsor with pride.

Recently, some of the students have received letters from their sponsors. Some of the sponsors even sent photos so that the students can see what they look like. The students enjoy learning more about who their sponsors are and what their lives are like.

Some of our Grade 3 and 4 students have shared their letters with the new prep (kinder) students. By doing this they are helping to teach the younger students about sponsorship.

The relationship between students and their sponsors is special and something that STA students value and appreciate. Sponsors can write letters to their students at any time. They would love to hear from you!
