CREATING goodwill among schools, Creative Life Montes- sori Pre-school pupils and parents­ fund-raised and donated R1 190 in support of the pilot Early Childhood Development (ECD) programme of Rotary, launched at Mother of Peace (MoP) last year.

“The ECD programme was initiated by Rotary because we believe education is the most powerful tool to alleviate poverty. Once the pilot project is running smoothly, Rotary will roll out the programme to skill other ECD facilities­ and ECD facilitators,” Iris Canham­, MoP general manager and project co-ordinator of Rotary’s ECD project stated.

Montessori Pre-school principal, Avanti Ramsunder said when she heard of the project through her father­-in-law, Jay Ramsunder, she thought it would be a great opportunity to teach her pupils that there are places where children are not as privileged as they are.

“Some of the pre-schooler’s parents were so kind to raise funds on our behalf. Two parents even made up an Easter hamper and we drew a raffle to thank parents who worked so hard,” Avanti said.

She said her school was started in January 2015 as there is a great need for pre-schools in the area and now has 15 pupils in total.
