AT the end of every year Wembley College supports a different charity project in the Umvoti area. This year our giving project is Philani Crèche in Lindelani. Started by Shalom Fellowship in 2008, the crèche meets the needs in this area, by assisting parents who need to work so they can leave their children with seven reliable, well trained teachers who specialise in early childhood development. There are between 80 and 90 children, ranging in age from 0 five years old, in three classes from baby care to Grade RR. Each day these children are fed breakfast and lunch. Wembley collected and donated food for the crèche which will go a long way to help cut costs. This term Lauren Poree, who assists at the crèche, organised educational art lessons for our senior primary pupils who made a variety of educational toys from recycled material.

The results were amazing and the children at Philani will enjoy doing puzzles, sorting objects by colour, counting, threading and tying laces.

Thank you to pupils, parents and staff who made contributions towards Philani Crèche.
