What we have been up to at WB Tshume

Our ongoing partnership with WB Tshume Primary school this year has so far included many activities thanks to the ongoing support of Grants-in-Aid and individual donors, particularly the Royal Wootton Bassett Rotary Club in the UK.

After school environmental education with the Qhamani Garden Club, where between 10-15 (sometimes more!) children attend practical garden/environmental lessons with our associate, Alhyrian Laue and our parent assistant, Linda Bartman on Wednesday afternoons. Below are some photos illustrating some of the activities…which also include singing songs about the work they are doing!

One of our longest supporters and friends in the UK, Keith and Janice Griffin, who also manages the Rotary Club support in the UK (mentioned above) sent boxes with educational material and toys for the Pre-Grade R and Grade R classes at the school. It added great value to the children’s education and playtime…

Last but not least, with the support of the RWB Rotary Club this year, Linda Bartman, the parent assistant, will be opening a healthy tuckshop on the school premises, selling healthy meals (supplemented from the school garden that she manages) to the school and community. The room is still busy being prepared, so we will be able to show nice pictures towards the end of the 2nd term, as well as progress in the garden and Grade R classrooms…

Then we still need to update you on the mural that was painted at the school by local artists, Sakhumzi and his brother. We plan to hold a showcase for the parents as well, after which we will send an update…
