|IN OUR OCTOBER EDITION:|
And how exciting to think of all we can achieve in the next 10 years to come…
3 R's News: Reading, Running, Righting
Reading: The October education (Reading) worksheets explore “My Future” and children think about their talents and what they want to be one day. The topic of entrepreneurship is followed by ‘all things money’ which includes loads of money maths practice!
Running: During the sports (Running) hour we alternate between athletics and dance. The children have learned the Macarena, SpongeBob dance and even the Waltz (to name a few). Dance improves footwork, coordination and rhythm and boy, these kids can dance!
Right-ing (life skills): In the life skills lessons (Right-ing) the children are building their own concerts, which include songs, dances and a play using the creative skills they have acquired during the course of the year. This will be performed for friends and family at the end of the year.
Partnering with the Lunchbox Fund
Four of our after-school projects in the Langeberg – that’s 151 children in total - started receiving their first Lunchbox Fund meals this month. The feedback from the children has been beyond our wildest expectations!
We were excited about our new partnership with the Lunchbox Fund as we knew the children really needed food, but we never imagined that they could be so grateful for soya or vita drinks! The difference really is in the quality of food that the Lunchbox Fund is providing. The meals not only fill the children’s tummies but as a result of this nutrition, their concentration and energy levels have improved, thus making our work with them all the more effective.
THANKS to Sue Wildish (Lunchbox Fund) for assisting us in getting this new initiative up and running so quickly! Thanks also to Andi (Cape Wine Auction) for playing a role in our collaboration with the Lunchbox Fund, who is a fellow beneficiary of the CWA.
Walk and Talk with WAMTechnology
As part of their 20-year celebrations, WAMTechnology organized a “Walk and Talk” for our teens from Buffet Olives and a group from Kylemore High School.Our learners were taken on an educational 5km river walk from Boschendal Estate to Pniel where they were given talks on a variation of topics including the importance of community health, education, water and sanitation.
The children were spoilt and each received a goodie bag and boerewors roll at the end of the morning. The Anna Foundation was spoiled and was presented a cheque to the value of R10 000 by WAMTechnology as part of their 20 year Anniversary event! For more information on event speakers, click here»
