HAPPINESS is…giving.

Just ask the 22 children at Buhlebomvoti special school and their two incredibly dedicated teachers who, for the past five years, have been voluntarily teaching these youngsters with special needs.

A group of supportive and generous community members gave the school a Christmas party on 28 November and it was heartwarming for all to see the unrestrained joy and happiness of these youngsters as they enjoyed opening their presents and all the party goodies.

Buhlebomvoti special school was started five years ago to fill a very great need for educating children with special learning needs unable to cope with the mainstream in schools.

The amazing Ms Shezi (retired teacher) and Ms Mthembu have been teaching on a voluntary basis and have brought a lot of hope and joy to the children under tough circumstances.

Unfortunately the school does not have a permanent home but Umvoti AIDS Centre has kindly given the use of a room as a classroom.

As this is the season of giving, an urgent appeal has been launched for shoppers to buy an extra school item or two and place it in the Buhlebomvoti boxes in Greytown’s supermarkets or else drop off at the Greytown Gazette office.

The children need pencils, rubbers, rulers, soft cover exercise books jumbo sized crayons, kokis, glue, A4 ream paper etc. and the gift of any of these items would be of a great help.
