TUESDAY 15th NOVEMBER 2016
The Grade 00 and Grade R learners of Durban Girls College invited the Grade R learners from Makabongwe to celebrate with them again this year.
Nanin, our bus driver, arrived at school and we all boarded the bus with much excitement and anticipation.
Mrs Conradie – the JP Head – welcomed us – as did the teachers, Les, Ange, Jamie and Simone. We are always made to feel very welcome and special.
Lee and Lulu from Educate and Fascinate entertained the children with a wonderful interactive and colourful story about Billy who dropped his ice cream money in the sea and how all the sea creatures came to his rescue and helped him get back his R5.00.
There are some budding actors and actresses amongst the College and Makabongwe children. I watched as they listened intently and lived the story to it’s conclusion – which of course – was a happy one with Billy getting his money back.
The story had good life skills for our children to learn, remember and put into practice.
We also got to make a really colourful octopus with messages of love, peace, joy, caring, friends, family, giving and sharing. I made 3 and there were really fun to create.
After the story, the children got to play with the College girls in their playground and each child was presented with a gift pack containing lots of treasure.
We headed back to Makabongwe after a morning of caring, sharing, friends, joy, love, peace and giving. We feel like family!
On Friday 25th November, about 10 Makabongwe children went to Durban Girls College to attend their morning assembly and present each learner, teacher and Head a homemade Christmas cracker containing some marshmallow sweets.
A small THANK YOU for all the kindness that Durban Girls college show to Makabongwe throughout the year.
