TRANSFORMERS EXHIBITION FOR OUR KIDS

On 22 November 2017 the older children were invited to the Transformers Exhibition held at Grand West Magic Company – the promoters of Transformers sponsored 25 tickets for the children aged 4-5 years old. Some of the children were at first afraid as loud sounds meet you as you enter but it was really a treat for them – They interacted with two mobile transformers that roamed around in the exhibition hall and each child was given a high five gesture.

 

On display are large sized models of the various transformers that move their arms and dinosaurs as well as the classic vehicles on display as seen on the movie. Special thanks to the promoters of Transformers and the tour guide who had lots of patience with our children. After the tour they were able to draw a picture of their favorite transformer or build their own Lego transformer. The kids really enjoyed this activity. Check out the pictures where some of the children and staff transformed.

Adopt-a-child outing to Farm Yard

This year the children’s Annual outing was on the Saturday, 4th November 2017 – to Farm Yard in Klapmuts. Each child was chaperoned by either a family or host parent or a volunteer or staff member – the weather was great and there were lots of trees for shade. The families and volunteers interacted with all the children at the pool. The children were surprised to see their friends at the same venue and was very fascinating to see their reaction. There were great excitement for the older children with the water slide. The children were very interested and recognised animals and could name them as it is part of their themes in the preschool. The patrons paid their entry fees and the Bus was sponsored by Golden Arrow and Bronwyn Dyke. The host parents and volunteers loved the scenery of the Farm Yard and indicated that we should book this spot every year. The Adopt-a-child outing is arranged in aid of International children’s day , hence we arrange this outing every year on the first Saturday of November. Please be welcome to join us the next time. We are very thankful for individuals who sponsored the cost of the children but also thankful for the donation of 15 Umbrellas donated by Web Africa organised by one of our host parents Carol Clayton.
