Clean Water Tank Installation at Our School

Clean water is one of the few things in life that never fails to live up to expectations. It is difficult to overstate the importance of having it and it’s probably impossible. Clean water changes almost  everything. This is why access to and management of clean water is very important.  Sometimes we find ourselves struggling to get water as the community of Alicedale is facing serious issues with the shortage of water.

That is why the Sifunda kunye  water sanitation project  has helped us very much. They installed  more than 5 JOJO tanks at the school.

Words cannot express how grateful the school is to Sifunda kunye.

 

Sanitary Towel Donation

Nelson Mandela International Day is an annual international day in honour of Nelson Mandela, celebrated each year on 18 July, which when he was born. The Shamwari group decided to play their part by donating Sanitary towels to the girls of our school as part of celebrating the Madiba Month. On behalf of all the girls, the school would like to extend their gratitude to The Shamwari group for such an amazing gesture as we have been working very close with Shamwari for quite some time now. We all know the struggle of missing school every month because of not being able to afford sanitary towels. Thank you so much to the Shamwari group.

10 Pieces of Life Changing Advice You Can Learn From

Only 24 hours, yet so much goes in that time span. You go about your day, going through the boring and often dramatic evets. How often do you stop to realize that each hour of your day is packed with life-changing wisdom? Sure, there are  big events that punch you in the gut. The lesson from those are hard to ignore, but there are also many mundane things that happen in a day that also have a lot to teach you if you become aware of them.

  1. You have the opportunity to make a difference in the world and in yourself. Make the day meaningful.
  2. Breathe your way to a calmer, healthier and happier life.
  3. Start the chain reaction of positive tasking.
  4. Most things are not as bad as you think they are. Do your home works.
  5. Smaller problems are much easier to manage than larger problems. Do your tasks on time, so when the exams approaches you’ll only stress about them.
  6. Be considerate of other, always.
  7. The power of habit can transform your life. Study everyday.
  8. Your moods are contagious, share positive energy.
  9. An organized life is a calmer life. Time management is very important.
  10. Respect other people’s opinions, even when they differ from your own. Its rare that two people agree on most topics.

The girls had an excursion to Port Elizabeth. The planning for the trip was very chellenging as the girls tried so hard to raise funds so that they can be able to have this trip. Indeed their hard work paid off and they were able to visit Port Elizabeth and visited very nice placed including the beach. The club is being led by The Sifunda Kunye facilitator and Intermediate Maths teach Mrs Gxamza.
