SIBAHLE Sonke, the outreach programme at Peter Pan Special School, visited Pietermaritzburg’s SPCA recently.

They were welcomed by management and the staff at the SPCA.

Sibahle Sonke donated blankets and a food dish for the rescued animals. The staff also recited a poem for SPCA staff.

“The staff gave a cake as a token of appreciation for their selfless work in caring for the animals­ and volunteering their time,” said school secretary Vernalee Nimmo.

The special needs pupils from Sibahle Sonke then viewed the kennels where stray cats and dogs are housed.

“They learnt about how to safely approach unfamiliar animals and how to care for their own pets. This gave the pupils from Peter Pan Special School an opportunity to demonstrate their ability to care and show love towards these neglected animals. This emphasises the purpose of the Sibahle Sonke’s outreach programme which is to highlight the role that people with disabilities can play in using their strength and ability to help others in need.”

Nimmo thanked the SPCA for its hospitality.

“The staff was very helpful and enthusiastic and we had a fun morning at the SPCA.

“We hope that through sharing our programme events with the public, we encour- age everyone to look beyond a person’s disability and see the potential of each indivi- dual.

“We also thank supporters and donors who contributed to our Sibahle Sonke outreach programme and who make these events possible,” said Nimmo
