Youth leaders treated

Members of the Kraaifontein Youth Unite Programme had an exciting day of learning which focussed on key areas such as leadership, respect, listening and teamwork among others, during a recent trip to the Jack Muller Park in Bellville.

According to Alexis van Kervel, a Grade 8 teacher at Kraaifontein High School who organised the event, this was a way for the learners to be rewarded while having a lot of fun.

“The trip had a very positive effect on the children, they did not want to go home,” she said.

Activities that took place aimed at getting the children out of their comfort zones while focusing on the importance of teamwork and communication.

“Although group leaders were chosen, we also emphasised that we are all leaders in our own right. Many of these learners face extremely difficult challenges both at home and in the community. That is why it was important for them to just play in a clean and safe environment while just being kids.”

Van Kervel adds the trip came just at the right time as these learners were looking forward to their next outreach programme at the Scottsdene Youth Centre, which was postponed to a later date.

“It was amazing to see how confident and ready they were while preparing for the event. They were so eager to ask their own questions, but unfortunately, to their disappointment, the outreach programme was postponed.”

Despite having a limited budget, the children enjoyed the day while indulging on delicious eats and treats.

“We had to make the best with the little resources we had. I funded the trip on my own with the help of the community. The cleaning staff at our school also made some vetkoek. They (the learners) were very appreciative.

“We welcome donations, but working with what we have also teaches the learners that you do not need much to make a difference in someone’s life.”
