Our South Africa Project
Our class completed a project all about our school and our lives in Ireland. It was delivered by hand to a very disadvantaged crèche in the township of Witsand,South Africa, by volunteers of the Niall Mellon Township Trust charity.
There are no schools in Witsand other than this crèche, which caters for children up to 7 years of age. All the other children in the community of Witsand must travel to the next town of Atlantis to go to school, which is very difficult as there are very few modes of transport.
The first language taught in these schools is either English or Afrikaans with Xhosa taught as a third language.
The children and teachers in the crèche were delighted to receive our project all the way fromIreland, and here are some of the pictures of the local children with our project!
