The summer holidays are over and the school have opened up again. Some learners think the holiday should be shorter, because at school they have a safe environment, a predictable day, loving teachers and tasks and goals to work at. When the gates open up on the first day of school, it’s a party for most. The children come running, dancing and singing, ready for the new year with their new teacher. At the same time, new young children who find it a bit scarier than the older kids, come walking through the same gate. The Grade R children are beginning the year at a new school and are blown away by everything that is new and unfamiliar. Of course they’ll be used to their new surroundings within a week, but the first day will always be something scary and exciting.
When you sponsor a class at King’s College, you’ll follow these children from Grade R until they leave our school. All last year’s classes have moved up a grade and with them their sponsors too, but the new Grade R classes are still sponsor-less. That’s why we are looking for new families, schools, companies, friends, students, clubs or churches who will take up sponsorship of these sweet toddlers. With R400/$40 a month you’ll help us offer the children in these classes good education in a safe environment.
