The event sponsored by Dutchies, is captured in this video showing the fun of the evening, performances by the children and staff, a chaotic auction and the raising of a considerable sum for the support of Yomelelani school. Next year’s date 20th February, 2020.
This is the March 2019 version of the Yomelelani Progress Report, updating our earlier production. It contains current staff and pupil numbers together with a brief look at ancillary activities on the premises.
The Yomelelani ECD Centre hosted a water conservation project across four days, teaching dozens of children about where water comes from, how it gets to their taps, and crucially how they can help to save water in their everyday lives at home and at the centre.
The aim of the project was to increase awareness of the need to save water in light of the water shortages in Cape Town and across South Africa.
As well as learning valuable tips on saving and recycling water, the children also wrote songs using key words from their lessons to reinforce what they had learnt. As ever, their performances were a real highlight!
The project has been a great success, and the children have learned a lot whilst having fun. You can read more about what the children got up to in the Yomelelani ECD Centre Project – “Saving Water” leaflet here.
See the important role food plays in keeping our children healthy at the school in our short video.
The owners of Dutchies Restaurant, Joke Gonggrijp and her son Daan, hosted a magical dinner under the Milkwood trees at Grotto Beach on Friday 16th February in aid of Yomelelani.
We’ve put together a short video showing some of the highlights of the evening.
