In the midst of celebrating Purim, the senior group’s children were introduced to Uvemvane, a non- profit organisation that provides psychotherapy to those who have limited access to mental healthcare services.

Uvemvane work with children and families who have experienced trauma or adverse life experiences. During the week of Purim celebrations, the children made butterfly wings; learnt about the life cycle of the butterfly and also enjoyed a drama session on butterflies as Uvemvane means butterfly in Zulu.

On Friday, March 10, the children sold butterfly iced cupcakes at the school and raised R3 700 in support of Uvemvane.
