Kannemeyer Primary South African National Circus visit

On the 11th of February 2015, the students at Kannemeyer Primary school received a grand surprise. During break time, the students were asked to assemble in the school's parking lot. There they found a large red backdrop with the words 'SAN Circus" emblazoned on the front. After waiting in anticipation as the performers set up their material, the students were awarded for their patience with a fun-filled performance which included clowns, acrobats and flame throwers. A few Kannemeyer students were even given the opportunity to be part of the act. The pictures tell the story.

Zonnebloem Boys Primary Zonnebloem Boys Primary School Sustainability Day 2014

 
Article by Heike Moore on behalf of Swiss Re Life.
 
Filled with enthusiasm and excitement, most of the Cape Town staff came to work on Monday 8 December, wearing their new t-shirts and eager to get started at either Zonnebloem Primary or Zonnebloem High School, depending which project they had signed up for. We are mindful of the ones that weren't able to join us due to deadlines & work commitments and look forward to hearing about their involvement with Chilanga Riding
 
 
School for the Disabled at the end of January!
 
The mission at Zonnebloem Primary School was to brighten up some walls with colorful murals. We used a company called See-Saw-Do who came and prepared the walls in advance so all we had to do on the day was color in the murals. Some went beyond the call of duty and were really creative by adding some personal touches to the murals!! What's really rewarding is that from the office we can see our newly created "granny" peaking through the
trees.
 
Mulalo had this to say:
"The Sustainability Day was such an awesome day! I really had fun painting the walls knowing that it will brighten up the playground for the children. It is such a great feeling to know that we have contributed to children happily playing with the characters on the walls. Thank you once again for organising such an amazing day."
 
As you can see, the walls turned out amazing and even though it was blazing hot we were grateful that the Cape Doctor decided to take the day off. Lots of sunblock was used & many cold drinks consumed and the sense of fulfillment once all was done was incredible. Unfortunately we weren't there the following day to see the faces of the kids but I'm sure, they must have been super excited.

Zonnebloem Nest High School Zonnebloem Nest High School Sustainability Day 2014

 
Article by Heike Moore on behalf of Swiss Re Life.
 
Filled with enthusiasm and excitement, most of the Cape Town staff came to work on Monday 8 December, wearing their new t-shirts and eager to get started at either Zonnebloem Primary or Zonnebloem High School, depending which project they had signed up for. We are mindful of the ones that weren't able to join us due to deadlines & work commitments and look forward to hearing about their involvement with Chilanga Riding School for the Disabled at the end of January!
 
 
At the high school the mission was to transform the ever drag staff room to a nice and cosy safe-place for the teachers. Well, before we started on the project, Judith asked me which project to join and I convinced her to join mine as we were going to be interior decorators and the physical work was expected to be "light". Well, little did we know that it was going to turn out completely the opposite! Painting in the blazing heat was often in our minds seen as perhaps the "better option".... When we got to the staff room, the floor hadn't been sorted as we had expected so we all just had to get stuck in. We first tried it the "good old manual" way but after an hour of scrubbing and being high on the stripper fumes, we got clever and hired a machine! It was still heavy work which took most of the day to transform the floor from what you see here to the end result. We painted shelves, the fridge, desks, entrance hall and the door and only at around 15h30 were we ready to start moving in all the newly bought goodies for the staff room. This was the exciting bit which Judith had signed up for..... the looks she gave me from time to time, when we were on our hands and knees scrubbing, were priceless!! She's never going to believe a word I say again.....Well as you can see for yourself, the end result is WOW, no - it's WOW!!!
 
Some feedback received from Shirley (Community Cohesion Counsellor) who was at school on Tuesday
morning to witness the teachers' expressions:
"I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you and every one of your amazing colleagues that threw their heart and soul into this project. Your commitment to it has been incredible and we are very grateful. I got to school this morning and was literally accosted in the passage with teachers
saying over and over, they really did not know how to thank us. One teacher (new) said when he had first arrived people were walking around with slumped shoulders and overnight they had straightened. I think we can take this comment both literally and figuratively, and view it as a positive start to a promising 2015. 
 
Many thanks once again,
Shirley"
 
Thank you all for your participation!!! We have contributed far more than what's apparent to the eye right now -
the impact is huge!!

Kannemeyer Primary Kannemeyer Career Day

The Students at Kannemeyer Primary School were recently dealt an amazing treat. On Wednesday the 22nd of October they were given the opportunity to speak to a variety of professionals from different disciplines. This event was made possible by the Partners for Possibility Programme, more specifically Ridwan Samodien's Partner for Possibility Louise Van Rhyn. This event gave the students a chance to enquire into the possibilities they have ahead of them, career-wise. For two hours, the school's courtyard was turned into a intense consultation area. Present were a number Cape Town's profesional's from the following disciplines:

  •  
  •  
  • Physical Training
  •  
  •  
  • Medicine
  •  
  •  
  • Law
  •  
  •  
  • Marketing and Events Planning
  •  
  • Metalurgical Engineering and Project Management
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  • Entrepreneurship
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  • Community Development
  •  
  •  
  • Education
  •  
  • Innovation and Change Management
  •  
  •  
  • Photography
  •  
  •  
  • Actuarial Science
  •  
  •  
  •  
  • Engineering
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

Each of the professionals were put on the hotseat as it were. They each got a station were students where given an alloted time to sit with the professionals of their choice and ask as many questions as they would like. Some of the professionals even brought props to help them demonstrate some facets of their professions and they were all very impressed with the curiosity that was shown by the students. The enquiries from the students  included enquiries such as 'What does a typical day in your job look like?', 'What do I have to study to be where you are?', 'Do you ever get bored in your profession?' and by far the most popular question: "How much money do you make?'. The educators at Kannemeyer expressed a lot of gratitude to PfP for hosting this event as it gave the students an opportunity to explore the opportunities open to them a lot more fully than general dialogue, with people civilian to those professions, ever could.
