Nelson Mandela Day was celebrated in true South African style as the gift of giving, love and kindness was overwhelming at Glenoaks School and Oakhouse Vocational Academy 🇿🇦. Each Grade or Class got involved in their own initiative and this was awesome! For example, the Grade 2’s and Junior Class visited the SPCA and donated food and blankets, the Grade 5’s and Grade 7’s sewed fluffy toys for children at an Orphanage, the Grade 6’s made play dough for the underprivileged and learners in the Academy brought some Mandela fever to the Hayani Support Centre in Orange Grove.
These learners transformed the garden, played with the children, warmed up the soup that they made in Hospitality, fed the children, washed up and cleaned the kitchen, packed bookshelves with the books that were donated by learners at school and sorted all the items that were so kindly donated by the Glenoaks and Oakhouse families. It seems like we really got into the Mandela fever and spirit! We challenge you all to continue the Mandela magic 🇿🇦. #GlenoaksSchool #OakhouseVocationalAcademy #MandelaDay
