Joy was written on the faces of children at Monwabisi Educare Centre from Langa when they received a donation of stationery from a clothing store on Wednesday.

The donation was made available for the second time since last year by Ackermans clothing retail store.

Nontuthuzelo Sibenya, the principal of the centre, said they were over the moon for the donation.

“We are very excited today for the donation. Ackermans donated books to us last which we are using to teach children.

We are confident that we have groomed the children very well for the main school next year.

There is not teacher that is going to find difficulties with children who are coming from our centre,” Sibenya said.

There are 60 children out of 100 that will bid their farewell for main school when they close on 12 December.

Ackermans also awarded Kholeka Nojilana, a teacher, with a certificate of appreciation after she completed a second training on effective methods of teaching.

Nojilana was happy for being acknowledged for her work.

“This is my second award from Ackermans. I attended training for Nal’ibali which equips us with effective ways for teaching children.

I am over the moon.

The training was great. They keep on doing great things for us,” Nojilana said.

Leanne Beattie, for public relations at Ackermans, said the donation was part of their Ububele School Programme (kindness and generosity) which is their Early Childhood Development (ECD) initiative.

The ECD is an initiative they run in partnership with Wordworks and the Nal’ibali reading-for-enjoyment campaign supports early language learning and literacy among children.

“We need to celebrate the hard work that the teachers do. We are very privilege and it is lovely to support them.

The children are great and it this brings light on their faces,” Beattie said.
