Thursday 7th May was a VERY sad for us as we said our final goodbyes to Peter, Portia’s husband.

John Peter Kelly was born in Cockomouth, England and moved to South Africa in 2017.

Although he only spent a few years of his life in SA, this is where he wanted to be.

He loved the South African sun, the outdoors life and the people of this country.

Peter volunteered his time as our Balls Skills coach and Computer Skills training coach.

He was always keen to help and joined in various school festivities with enthusiasm.

Peter or “Uncle Peter” as the children called him was a salt of the earth, sincere and real man whose desire to help others was unlimited.

He loved the school and especially the children and affirmed and praised them regularly.

Uncle Peter always had the time and energy to find words of encouragement.

Peter will be sorely missed by staff, management and especially the children.

He was part of our team.

Those we love don’t go away,

They walk beside us every day.

Unseen, unheard, but always near,

Still loved, still missed and very dear.

Rest in peace Peter – Lala kahle uphumule
