WEDNESDAY 6th NOVEMBER 2019
I think as adults, priorities change and we see life differently to children. This can be both a good and bad thing.
At Christmas time, children naturally focus on presents and what they are going to get.
For me, it’s more about family, friends and fellowship AND spreading the true essence and meaning of Christmas.
This is EXACTLY what Educate and Fascinate did when the Grade R Makabongwe learners visited Durban Girls College for their Christmas Party.
The story goes something like this…..
Sally who did not come from a wealthy family was upset that she was not going to have a fun Christmas with lots of presents and a nice holiday at the beach or in the mountains.
Captain Christmas paid a special visit to Sally and took her around the town on his sleigh showing her where and how she could spread the true meaning of Christmas in her neighbourhood.
Every gift she could give was FREE and somehow after giving away the gifts, Sally herself felt so much better.
Sally got to share the gifts of LOVE, JOY, PEACE, HONESTY, FORGIVENESS, KINDNESS, HELFULNESS, COURAGE
What a wonderful world this would be if we all gave even just one of these gifts to our “neighbour”
The entertainment was followed by a party and playtime in the school grounds.
The Makabongwe children and College young girls exchanged gifts and everyone had a jolly good time.
Thank you Les, Jamie, Cath, Hlengiwe and Aynslie for a truly memorable morning spent with you – from the time we arrived on the bus to the time we had to go back to Makabongwe.
