REPRESENTATIVES of the Tongaat Child and Family Welfare Society visited
Seatides Combined and
Buffelsdale Secondary schools to thank principals, co-ordinating teachers and pupils who raised funds for the society’s “Children’s Fund” programme.

Board of Management member Balan Subramunier said: “The main emphasis of the fund is to provide really poor learners with a breakfast meal, so that they would be better able to concentrate in class work. Currently 2559 learners are beneficiaries of the fund.”

Subramunier highlighted that pupils who have participated in the collections are “volunteers” and should be proud of their contributions.

Senior social worker Devi
Naidoo said that research supported a positive link between hunger reduction, improved nutrition and children’s learning.

“The fund involves children helping children, and we are proud of the teamwork between school children and the society and it is wonderful to notice how little children are able to think of less fortunate learners from such an early age. It says a lot about the power of motivation they receive from their principal and teachers,” Reddy said.

In addressing assemblies, the team from Tongaat Child and Family Welfare Society praised the staff and pupils of the schools for their enviable sense of charity.

Social worker Kulsoom Adam gave special thanks to the co-ordinating teachers for their commitment and hard work towards sustaining the Breakfast Programme and encouraged them for their support towards this initiative.

Adam explained that the money raised helps the society to provide a breakfast to needy pupils before the commencement of the school day.

Certificates of recognition were presented to Principals and qualifying pupils.
