THE Lions from Kloof, in conjunction with Clive Phillpotts (voluntary business partner to the principal, Mr Sandile Ndlovu) and a group of Grade 9 pupils from Kearsney College spent time at Nyuswa Primary School in Botha’s Hill.

Lions Clubs International is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. Founded in 1917 by Melvin Jones in the US, it has grown to be a global leader in the fight against poverty, diabetes eradication and education and various sight and hearing programmes. Clubs work throughout the world and in their closest communities always with the association’s motto at the mind “We Serve”.

The Lions and Kearsney boys brought Easter cheer by assisting teachers with a maths and English lessons, helping landscape certain portions of the school entrance areas and in the afternoons teaching pupils the art of rugby and cricket. Much competitive laughter was heard during the soccer games while the young girls were taught some creative crafts by Lion, “Auntie” Avril.

The sports, which also included chess and badminton, were very obvious winners all round. Fun was had by all.

According to Clive Phillpotts, the Kearsney boys were a real inspiration to the Nyuswa pupils.

Nyuswa Primary School turns 80 this year and to commemorate this auspicious day, Mr Ndlovu will be organising a sports day later in the year and is looking for sponsors for the event.

Kloof Lions are assisting with the setup of a library on the premises and any books or shelving would also be greatly welcomed.

If you have anything that you may have that could be of use to the school, please contact Lion Linda Loubser on 083 563 7992.
