Three young scholars graduated from the Flower Valley Early Learning Centre at the end-of-year concert, held at the Masakhane Community Hall on 2 December.
Eyam May, Verushka Vermeulen en Imivuyo Gugula - all from Masakhane and De Kelders - received their Grade R Diplomas. They’re all heading off to ‘big school’ from 2017.
The theme for the evening concert was: Environmental education is the key to a better world. This theme shone through the activities and songs that the 27 children acted out on stage.
Parents, guardians, teachers and friends of the Early Learning Centre joined the children in celebrating the start of the festive season, and the conclusion of a busy school year at our centre. The kids sang songs such as ‘Heal the world’ and ‘All the beautiful creatures’ (from the movie, Rio), and performed a gumboot dance and a boys’ freestyle dance.
The kids loved jumping, clapping and singing on stage with the bright lights shining on them. They also entertained the crowds with Christmas carols, joined by the parents and teachers.
Our Early Learning Centre on Flower Valley Farm provides an environmental education to children from the surrounding rural and peri-urban areas. The farm setting allows children to connect with nature - including the wonderful fynbos landscapes.
