Trash into treasure
Fellowship Christian School is situated in a disused metal scrap yard in Phillipi in the southern suburbs of Cape Town. This school, which tutors young children from disadvantaged backgrounds in the area, is run by dedicated ladies who have good hearts and care deeply for these children. Apart from diligently teaching they provide both breakfast and lunch for these youngsters every day.
On Tuesday the 7th July at 1pm, 8 students from Grace Academy in the UK joined the team leaders from NEWKIDZ to complete a job of brightening up the outside walls of the Grade R classroom.
It was a matter of working against the clock as there was only 4½ hours available to draw the picture on the wall, paint it in bright colours as well as paint the cement flooring green.
The students worked well together and with their good sense of humour were able to transform the dull looking wall to a bright and colourful one.
Our sincere thanks to Delia Stanhope for approaching NEWKIDZ with this project. Well done Grace Academy – it was a pleasure working with you!
