There’s never a dull moment in the lives of the children at Makabongwe.
One of our learning themes is our 5 senses.
On Thursday 17th March Di Turner of SA Guide Dog Association came to visit our school with Jenny and her beautiful guide dog, Gracie. Di also bought along Dougal, her faithful companion.
Di told the children what life without eyes is like and how clever guide dogs are.
She told us that blind people can read and even write on a special machine.
They have a clever way of knowing what denomination of currency they are using at a shop for both coins and notes.
Many of the children were frightened of the dogs but some brave ones stroked, patted or rubbed Gracie and Dougal’s tummies and some very brave children even kissed the dog’s heads.
We handed over R1396.50 raised by the children of Makabongwe.
