Musical Evening

Pikkewyntjies / Penguinkidz Pre-School

On Saturday 18 November, the internationally acclaimed cellist, Erich Huetter will be performing in the Community Hall in Pringle Bay.  He will be accompanied by Pringle Bay's own Barbara Kennedy on cello and piano.  There will be special appearances by multi-instrumentalist Dr. Bruce Copley and Dancer Tanja Schmid.  

It is essential to book tickets as seating is limited. This may be done at Lemon & Lime in Pringle Bay. 

We are asking adults to donate R100 for the pleasure of hearing the music.  Children are very welcome too, at half price and although we do not invite them, as we invite their elders to enjoy a glass of wine with us, they are certainly included in the offer of snacks.  

The money collected will purchase school uniforms for the Pikkewyntjies who are going to Grade 1 in Kleinmond next year.  

We would like to thank the musicians and Tanja for donating their time to help ensure our little children start school confident and happy that they are correctly dressed.  We hope very much you are able to help our children too - and - enjoy yourselves thoroughly while you do it.

Of course winter does mean getting up in the dark and cold which is no fun and when Juffrou Zaan arrives with the bus at Hangklip and Pringle Bay and Rooi Els, only the headlights guide the Pikkewyntjies to their lift but there are compensations.&nbs...
