Over the weekend a number of our school families were affected by shack fires in the Hadji Ebrahim settlement. While their shack was burning down Lameck (far right) begged his mom to save his school bag which contained his message book and Grade R registration forms. Thankfully she was able to and he was at school today. He was really feeling down though because he had to borrow shoes from another boy at school. Fortunately there was a pair for him in our cupboard of emergency clothing and he happily joined the others on their outing to the park.
When COLT children arrive at the Educare each morning they know that they are in a safe, nurturing environment with a predictable routine, where learning is fun!
