THE children at the Tongaat School for the Special and Mentally Handicapped (SMH) in KwaTiba were treated to an exciting day of action when police officers and social workers visited the school for a day of educational entertainment.

The small school in KwaTiba offers alternative learning facilities to children with various disabilities, where the children can learn and play in a safe and secure environment away from mainstream education.

Police officers from King Shaka International Airport and the K9 unit, as well as representatives from NGOs Men for Change and the Women’s Network arrived at the small school to interact with the excited children.

The police dance band and the SAPS Polmusca Choir performed a number of songs, which kept the children on their feet as the danced along to the music.

Samsung SA donated a brand new curve television to the school, while other companies sponsored the refurbishment of their netball poles, new stationery for the children to use, as well as meals and refreshments for them to enjoy on the day.

Constable Jared Govender at King Shaka SAPS said the day was lots of fun and truly rewarding since everyone there was interested in giving back.

“I wish to thank everyone who took the time and effort to assist in making this day a memorable one for the kids of the Tongaat School for the SMH,” said Govender.
