THE Rotary Anns of Uitenhage South once again showed their commitment to uplifting the poor and needy in the community by revamping the reception classes at Caritas Primary School in Rosedale, Uitenhage.

The classrooms were in a terrible state with holes in the floors, broken ceilings, poor ventilation and in dire need of a coat of paint.

“The kids attending the school come from impoverished areas in Rosedale and the local community is totally unable to help,” said Anns President, Anita Naidoo.

The Anns raised money through their steak braais, and undertook to make the classrooms more colourful and vibrant, as reception classes ought to be. They refurbished and fully decorated the classrooms, and with the assistance of Nikita Karsan, displayed their artistic talent by also painting beautiful and fun artwork on the walls.

“The kids were overwhelmed when they saw their newly painted classrooms, and the teachers, Mrs Goliath and Mrs Joseph, along with the principal Eric Meyer were also elated on seeing the end results,” said Naidoo.

Learners and staff alike have expressed their heartfelt gratitude for what the Anns have done for them.

The Anns are also pleased to have been able to uplift the morale of the teachers and learners in the school, and Ann President Anita Naidoo would like to thank the public for continually supporting all their ventures in reaching out to the poor and needy in the community.
