Growing from a need to also serve our own community, Voortrekker has partnered up with Thembi’s Crèche since the beginning of 2019. Here learners are provided the opportunity to give back to their community in the form of service.
Once a week ‘n school bus full of learners spend an hour at the creche. Here we sometimes simply play outside with the kids. Many times we attempt an art project, ranging from pasta jewellery to finger painting. We also deem it important to learn a few basic skills, such as playing with a hula hoop, kicking a soccer ball and most of all, singing and dancing together. At Easter and Christmas we make it extra special for the kids by doing an Easter Egg hunt, making our own bunny masks, and making sure that each child is spoiled with a Christmas present.
Learners who are not able to attend the weekly outreach can also contribute to our fundraising events.
It is important that at Voortrekker High School we not only focus on preparing learners academically for the world out there, but that we also teach them to be caring young adults helping those in need around them.
