New Year facelift for Nceduluntu Nursery

Willing volunteers

A new year sees the start of a new project. We have been working at Ncedeluntu Educare centre in Nomzamo. It is run by the same group that we work with at Ikhayalethemba Village. Mama Lumka told us that she wanted to repaint some of the walls, so we decided it was the perfect opportunity to help out, and with four willing volunteers and a few staff members we have been creating masterpieces. The highlight is the mural in the main classroom, including weather features, animals, colours, numbers and letters, and incorporating a green chalkboard as the foliage of a tree. It has been great to have such an enthusiastic group. 

Their ideas and energy have transformed a few rooms into an interactive place of learning. It has also been great to see the local staff getting involved with the painting, and even the children have added their own marks! It has been a team effort that will last for a long time and inspire the people who work and learn here. Even this week we have been using the classroom whilst adding the finishing touches and the kids are loving it, from educational things like counting to learning new animals (no one had ever seen a Panda before!) they have benefited so much from this.
