Social services keen on kid’s safety drive

2018-06-28 06:03

The City of Cape Town’s Social Services Directorate is keen on keeping children busy this June holiday.

“It can be a challenge to keep the young ones busy for a few weeks during the school holidays, especially during winter when it’s cold and they can’t get outside to play.

“The City’s facilities offer winter programmes that ensure there is something for everyone, from younger children to teenagers. No-one has to be bored this winter school holiday,” says Mayco member for safety, security and social services, JP Smith.

The Recreation and Parks Department has a diverse range of both indoor and outdoor activities on offer at its hubs – from board games and sport, to dancing and face painting.

In addition to the usual selection of books and audiovisual materials on offer at libraries, children can enjoy puppet shows, arts and crafts and talent shows.

“The list of activities to keep young minds busy is exhaustive.

“I want to encourage parents to send their children to these programmes to not only keep them safe and busy, but also give them the opportunity to socialise and learn. They can have some good old-fashioned fun in a safe and inclusive space.

“Holidays can also be expensive and all of the programmes at our libraries and recreation hubs are free of charge. The variety of programmes that we offer, and the fact that they run across the city, are part of our efforts to get as many children involved as possible and helps to foster community cohesion.”
