AMANZIMTOTI High prefects visited Mother of Peace recently and spent the afternoon with the children, which turned out to be a great success.

“When we got there the first thing we did was clean up the art room that was being renovated. Everyone helped out. Walls were washed and the old paint was scraped off.

“Some of the girl prefects assisted with building the trampoline. That was a bit of a challenge, but the girls handled it well. The children were so happy when they saw their new toy, everyone wanted to jump at once, which was interesting to see.

“Later that afternoon, Amanda Ngobese spoke to the children about leadership. Surprisingly the children had something planned for the prefects as well. They sang for us - the choir was amazing and the way they sang touched prefects’ hearts. I say this because most of the prefects had tears in their eyes. Everyone was emotional. That was the most special part of that amazing afternoon.

“The boy prefects played soccer with the children, which was most enjoyable for them. Photos were taken and memories made.

“Ashley Heath gave out lollipops and art material to the children to assist with the new art room. She was the one who made this visit a success and organised it. Most importantly the whole prefect body made this possible. It was all about making the children happy.

“The ‘mothers’ were very kind and they were very appreciative of what the prefects did for the children. The prefects realised there is more to life than to be self-absorbed. When we left, the children were so happy that we left them with something memorable. It was definitely worth giving up time for.” - Phakamile Ntshingila, Grade 12, Jv
