Dear Michael Oak Community

Help raise funds for our school and others with the MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet Fundraising programme. MySchool contributes over R8 million to their beneficiaries every month. Michael Oak benefits by around R3000 per month through our supporters. As a supporter it doesn’t cost you an extra cent to make a difference, and it can save you money.

How does the Programme work?

Get a card (see below) then simply swipe your MySchool Card when you shop at one of the many MySchool partners. These include Woolworths, Engen QuickShops, Walton’s, Toys R Us, Reggie’s,  Altech Netstar and prepaid electricity to name just a few. They donate a percentage of your spend to our school. There is no extra cost to you.

Card holders also automatically qualify to be a part of the Woolworths WRewards programme, which offers up to 20% off instantly on over 1000 items in store. 

How do I get started?

  1. Download, complete and return to the school this application form >>  MySchool Application PDF
  2. Apply online at or via phone at 0860 100 445.
  3. Ask at any Woolworths branch.

Note: The supporter card is not a credit or debit card.

Already have a card?

Frequently asked questions

Is it possible to support more than one beneficiary?

Yes. You can support up to 3 beneficiaries. Funds will be split equally between the beneficiaries.

I already have a card. Do I need a new one?

No. Simply change your beneficiary. Just phone MySchool on 0860 100 445 or visit

How do I link my MySchool supporter and Woolworths card so that I only need to swipe one card at Woolworths stores?

MySchool card holders automatically qualify to be a part of the Woolworths WRewards programme.

Woolworths cards aren’t automatically linked to MySchool though. To link your Woolworths card to support a MySchool beneficiary contact MySchool on 0860 100 445.
