A week-long school holiday programme for the children of Lwandle came to an end on Friday 7 December.

The programme, which started on Tuesday 27 November, was organised by Lwandle Migrant Labour Museum and ensured that youths aged three to 12 years were safe and away of any danger for its duration.

On the museum site, the children participated in various activities such as reading and drawing. Those who cannot read, were also given reading classes.

After a day’s activities, they were treated to a lunch throughout the holiday programme, which saw more than 30 youths diligently attend every day.

Yolisa Ntshayi, programme organiser, said the children were very responsive to all the activities and enjoyed being stimulated educationally.

“Some even asked us to host the programme again next year, which is a testament that they enjoyed every second of the programme,” she said.

“Since the schools have closed, we asked the children what they would be doing during the holidays, and most of them indicated that they would be travelling outside the province.”

Ntshayi said the programme also aimed to develop the young one’s communication and socialising skills, and it also provided them with the opportunity to gain confidence to speak in front of a larger audience.

She further said the museum will definitely be hosting similar projects in the future.
