Around 45 representatives from ECD centres across Mitchell’s Plain have been educated on the importance of saving water.

The principals and teachers attended a water resilience workshop at the Tafelsig Community Hall on Monday 9 April to discuss safety and water-saving methods, among other things. “The project was initiated beforehand and we only needed to secure a venue to host the workshop. We spoke about the desalination plants, saving water and tips, fire awareness and servicing of safety equipment,” says ward 82 councillor and subcouncil 12 chairperson, Sheval Arendse.

The event was hosted in conjunction with the City of Cape Town’s Social Development and Early Childhood Development Directorate, Safeline and the Department of Water and Sanitation­.

“The group also had a conversation with the main topic being the safety of children and also how to take steps within the ECDs,” he says.

Arendse says they are pleased with the number of principals who have already implemented water-saving measures.

“Many of them are adhering to the water restrictions. They all have around 20 children or more and are not flushing immediately. They have also invited us to check up at any time. They are very conscious about water saving,” he says.

Arendse further assisted ECD centres in registering with the Social Development and Early Childhood Development Directorate­.
