Last week Wednesday the Grade 6’s got together to do our bit for Mandela Day. Due to the fact that this day fell during the holiday’s, we decided to do our 67 minutes of making a difference as soon as the term started.
We decided it would be great to get involved in a feeding scheme and connected with SALT Ministries to find out where we could meet a need like this in our area. During our 67 minutes all the Grade 6’s were involved in the making of a whopping 360 sandwiches. They were buttered, filled with delicious fillings which included chicken mayo, polony and lettuce, cheese and lettuce and egg mayo. The kids then wrapped all the sandwiches and packed them into boxes.
These were then distributed to Bloubergrandt High School and a feeding scheme in Dunoon.
The children tackled this task with gusto and I think that they all left feeling a little happier in their hearts, knowing that they had made a difference in so many lives.
It was a true reflection of the heart of the man, Nelson Mandela, that we were honouring with our act of kindness.
