“It all ended in a colour jamboree, with young and old joining in the fun. That’s what memories are made from. The event started with a march past, with children shaking their shakers and shouting their war cries. Parents joined in and the atmosphere was electric. And overall, I think we had a superb day; it was really just lots of fun for the children. It was important to encourage team spirit.”

She said it was not about winning and losing, because all the children were winners, and they received a medal of participation and were so proud to show off their skills.

De Kock said it is vital to encourage all their learners to be secure and find comfort in parents, guardians and teachers’ love for them and to have self-esteem.

“The whole event was a confidence booster for our little ones. This philosophy does not end on the playing field though, it extends into the classroom. We don’t cap their learning and there are only 14 learners in each class, ensuring individual attention and a wonderful environment to grow and learn in. We are a 100% family-oriented pre-school, for us parent participation is important.”

De Kock thanked all the parents, parent committee and sponsors who supported the event.
