Teachers and learners of the Retlameleng Special School sent their heartfelt gratitude to the Busy Bee Pre-school for taking the time to remind them of the importance of Ubuntu.

This is after the learners of the pre-school, dressed in pyjamas, visited them to spend a few hours with these learners of the Retlameleng Foundation Phase on International Children’s Day on Thursday (01/06).

On the day, Busy Bee also held their annual Pyjama Day event.

The head of department of the school, Athalia Corlo, described how heartwarming it was for them to watch the little ones taking turns to sing and dance.

“We were touched as we watched the little ones spread joy to our children,” said Corlo.

“It is very seldom that we get such gestures of generosity and we appreciate it very much.

“They even brought along gifts of clothes and food that might come in handy.”

“We really want to thank those teachers for reaching out to us, because we were so busy focussing on our daily routines that we forgot the significance of the day.”

According to Corlo, that is one friendship that they would love to hold on to, because it is not the first time that the pre-school paid them a visit.

She concluded by highlighting the importance of expo-sing children to different environments in order for them to learn new things.

“It was so adorable to see them making an effort to sing along while the sign language learners sang to them.”

Busy Bee Pre-school principal Winnie Malinga appreciated the school for accommodating them in their busy schedule and thanked the teachers and parents who contributed towards the staff.

According to her, they would love to rotate the venues and visit other institutions and orphanages too as part of this specific programme.
