Mandela Day : Hip, Hip, Hooray!

18 Jul

Happy Birthday, Madiba!

The children at the Emmanuel Educare Pre-school at the Westlake United Church Trust were blessed abundantly on Monday 18 July 2011 which marks the 93rd birthday of Nelson Mandela. Not only is Reddam House School working to improve the Emmanuel playground by installing a super new jungle gym, irrigation system and roll-on lawn (see our facebook page for more news), but we were also visited by various friends bearing gifts.

Proud parent, Deon Lambert of Westlake provided chips and lollipops, and Brian, Esther & Chisomo from the Sagitta Group, Steenberg Office Park, provided sweets.

Jenny Williams and Andrea Knott delivered delicious and colouful cakes and cupcakes on behalf of the staff of the dealing room and treasury at Rand Merchant Bank, Great Westerford.

Michelle Sedgwick and her team from Run/Walk for Life Constantia brought us a very generous supply of sandwiches for the children.

To all of you, a big THANK YOU! Your generosity and thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated. All the children left school with their presents in a special party-pack in celebration of this special day.
