TONGAAT SAPS held a Christmas party for pupils from the LSAN School in Kwatiba recently to spread the cheer of the festive season.

The 130 pupils from the school for children with special educational needs were treated to lunch and goodie bags.

Tongaat police communications officer, Warrant Officer Manisha Mahraj-Marie said the police wanted to do something special for the children in the community so police officers together with local businesses partnered to hold the event.

The Christmas party also focused on safety and security for children ahead of the festive season. “We had talks about awareness in respect of safety for the festive season and what children should do and avoid over this period of time. We also spoke to the pupils about abuse, the different forms it takes, what they should do if they are [abused] or know of abuse,” said Mahara-Marie.

The talks included safety while on holiday and safety at the beach.

“We spoke to the children about what they should do when going to the beach and to always ensure they are accompanied by an adult,” said Maharaj-Marie.

The Christmas party included songs, dance and games while clowns entertained the pupils and Christmas father handed out goody bags.

“It was a very fun-filled and happy event,” said Maharaj Marie. “We would like to thank all the police officers and local businesses for helping make this day possible.”

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
