COMMITMENT was the value of the week, and surely the children of Kings College in Tokyo Sexwale, Jeffreys Bay were committed to their recycling project.

Classes of all grades had to develop a product out of recycled materials that could be marketable and profitable.

The projects included candle holders, lanterns, placemats, dollhouses, flower crafts, an organiser, a thermometer and even a broom made out of 18 plastic cool drink bottles. The ultimate winner was the Grade 1 class with a herb garden planter for your kitchen made from painted plastic bottles on a wooden base.

The school has an array of on-going projects. There are also the choir that performs at gala events, a dance project, handyman project, chess, knitting, landscaping, beads and hospitality. Soon these learners will take all the sport awards too.

Kings College is a small school with lots of determination, commitment and gratitude, but most of all with values and lots of love
