This newsletter is way overdue. This time I have decided to share a kaleidoscope of pictures of various events and news…

It is back to school for the children and the homeschooling at Pasture Valley has opened with Aunty Alicia teaching the Grade 3’s and Aunty Lungile teaching the Grade 1-2 classes. The homeschooling children are also given swimming lessons which they enjoy. Teacher Cebsile is teaching the Preschool children and the children love her reading and craft activities. At Ekuthuleni many of the girls are in leadership positions and are either prefects or head girl. Noncedo has done really well with getting within the top 5 in her grade at Nhlangano Central High.
