Our AGM Celebration/Blessing of the new building!

04 Aug

On Saturday 1 August, we held a special AGM Celebration and Blessing of our new building. What a wonderful occasion!

The hall was packed – many of our funders, sponsors, churches, and of course the community all came to celebrate with us! Eleanor, our pre-school Principal, along with friends from her church, did some spectacular flower arrangements and our newly painted hall looked beautiful. She also managed to prepare 600 plates of finger food and cakes – with the help of the kitchen and other members of staff and volunteers, and we are so grateful to Pick ‘n Pay for donating the food.

The children performed 3 dances in between the speeches and the noise of the enthusiastic audience nearly brought the ceiling down. Their rendition of the national anthem was unforgettable! The ABET group sang an item, and then the grand finale was the handing over of a magnificent banner, beautifully made by Joyce Pike and Jenny Fisher of St Martin’s Church, with a procession followed by the home based carers singing!

“God with us” is embroidered on the banner, and He is with us! We give Him all the glory for a truly amazing celebration!
