Lourier Junior School, Retreat, Parent/ Teacher training May 2010

Sally and I spent the afternoon at Lourier Junior School in Retreat as part of our Outreach training. We trained parents and volunteers, and their starting date for The Shine Centre is Mid-July. Mr Guqa the principal is very positive about the programme, and we are excited to be working with the NGO 'lifematters' to develop a Shine programme within the school. We salute the concept of strength in numbers, and the importance of collaboration: We are hoping that Constantia Rotary come on board as a donor to widen and strengthen the partnership.
We look forward to supporting 'Lifematters' and Lourier Junior School with training and resources on an ongoing basis over the next two years, and wish them every success with their programme. As I like to say, echoing Nike: ' Just do it!' PS Thank you to Liz, the Shine link, for the awesome chocolate brownies she baked for the training: she is world famous for her baking in that part of the Cape!
