During the winter school holidays, Vision AfriKa Vlottenburg provided its aftercare learners with a programme that was both fun-filled and educational in order to ensure their time was spent productively.
Each day the group, which consisted of 50 Grade 1 and 2 students, was divided up into four teams. Each one spent 20 minutes on an activity before moving onto the next one. The activities comprised basic computer training; baking and decorating; physical activity and lots of games. The learners then finished off the day by watching an educational film.
On one occasion, they were also taken on an instructive visit to the Rupert Museum in Stellenbosch, which hosts the private modern art collection of the now-deceased billionaire businessman, philanthropist and conservationist, Anton Rupert. The daytrip included a visit to the Oom Samie traditional general store on nearby Dorp Street, which stocks everything from handmade arts and crafts to straw brooms and fruit and veg.
Over the next holiday period, the aim is to extend the programme from one to two weeks to help out working parents and ensure participants are fruitfully occupied during the break.
