Filling empty tummies
On Friday the 19th of June and Monday the 22nd of June, we were proud to distribute 137,700 meals to 4600 students at our outreach partner schools in Olifantsfontein, Olievenhoutbosch and Boschkop in the Pretoria East.
Volunteers from Makro Head Office and Silver Lakes, Blue Bulls U19, Council for Geoscience and students from Tyger Valley College helped us with the mammoth task of handing out the much needed food parcels before the very cold winter holidays
The prep school classes make “love sandwiches” every week for the children at Skeerpoort Primary. Each class gets a chance to make sandwiches and great fun is had by all. For a lot of the kids it is the first time they have had to make sandwiches so our children benefit by learning basic life skills. Skeerpoort Primary students are grateful for their their nutritious sandwiches and partnership with Pecanwood College students.
Boschkop Farm School Visit
In May, the preschool hosted 60 Grade 0 children from Boschkop Primary school.
Students enjoyed breakfast and hot chocolate. The children then spent time in a classroom doing a craft which they could take home with them, and they enjoyed a session of Monkeynastix. At break fun was had in the playground, kicking balls, riding bikes and climbing jungle gyms.
On departure each child from Boschkop was given a lunch box filled with yummies and a pair of glove collected on “Groovy Glove day” by the students of Tyger Valley College.
Arts & Crafts Philena Outreach
The Southdowns College Grade 7 girls spent an afternoon teaching the students from Philena Primary in Olievenhoutbos arts and crafts and how to make a pencil holder out of recycled materials. The students were touched by the opportunity to share of their time and skills.
