Pikkewyntjies / Penguinkidz Pre-School

With everyone having rested, there's great enthusiasm for the year ahead.  Many of our little children are glad with all their hearts to be back at school in a safe, secure environment and to be fed again.  It's a worry over Christmas time for Zaan but the teachers cannot go on forever without a break and it's the only school holiday they take in the year. 

There are several projects planned for 2018 and one of them is a mural painted by the children for the white wall of the school which is the first thing one sees from the gate.  Zaan needs paint for this project.  

You would be doing us such a kindness to look in your storerooms or garages for any forgotten tins of paint.  However, little is in the tin, we would be thrilled to have it.  As long as it can still be used, perhaps with the addition of some turps, please let us have it.  It doesn't matter what colour it is either.  We can collect from Betty's Bay, Pringle Bay, Rooi Els and Kleinmond.
