Vuyokazi cut the ribbon and with a round of applause, she and her Grade R teachers entered the beautifully created classroom. What a difference…it brought them to tears to see their previously bare classroom converted into a bright; full and colourful room.
This team of Ackermans staff painted the interior and exterior of the building; fitted shelves; put up curtain rails; hung beautifully made curtains; decorated the various activity areas in the Grade R classroom with cushions, carpets, books, educational toys, story books and toys. The baby room got two additional camp cots; a changing table with changing mats (previously the carers had to bend down and change the over 30 babies and toddlers nappies on the floor – back breaking!); toys; blankets and bottles.
They also received a television set for the children’s enjoyment.
On behalf of NEWKIDZ, a BIG thank you to Ackermans for choosing this worthy project and a HUGE congratulations to the entire team for the awesome achievement.
The seeds of hope that these staff members planted into Mzamowethu EduCare, in the heart of Mfuleni, will truly bear much fruit for the young generation who attend this centre.
