RBI invited pupils to a Holiday Club for 3 days of the October school holiday. The programme was co-ordinated by Mr Ken Krige, Mr Dave Ryan, Mr Orateng Motsoe, Mrs Fiona Krige and Mme Tshepiso Morei. A number of teachers who have graduated from the RBI learnership programme volunteered as facilitators and were available to help the children during the classes.
More than 120 eager pupils participated in ‘Good Vibrations’. The programme ranged from making single string guitars using Pizza boxes generously donated by Milaneza in Waterfall Mall to learning about fractions and doing quizzes on iPads to collaborating on the cup song. The holiday school ended with a competition between 12 pupils playing ‘Happy Birthday’ solo on their guitars and groups presenting their rendition of the cup song. Prizes were also awarded for the individual and team relay races around the RBI offices.
Attendance was excellent and the children must be commended on their commitment to attending and learning during their holiday. We all had a lot of fun and the children developed skills that they had not been exposed to previously.
