PAYING IT FORWARD with aQuelle & Singakwenza

Cordwalles Preparatory School is proud to be associated with aQuelle as the title sponsor of the Cordwalles Mudman. Every year, aQuelle kindly donates bottles of water to the Cordwalles Preparatory School boys to promote the aQuelle Cordwalles Mudman. This year, the boys decided to ‘pay it forward’. Instead of consuming the water at school themselves, they decided to donate all the bottles of water to a charity organisation, Singakwenza.

aQuelle generously came on board, and instead of donating 450 bottles, aQuelle doubled the donation to 900 bottles of water! Grade 7 boys along with staff from Singakwenza handed out the bottles of aQuelle water to the children of a crèche in Mpophomeni, along with Easter eggs as part of their 67 minutes of outreach.
Singakwenza is a charity organisation which aims to build sustainable early childhood education programmes in economically disadvantaged communities.

Mrs Derryn Odell, HOD of the Pre-Primary at Cordwalles Preparatory School invited Unisa and Varsity College students, currently studying early childhood development and teaching, to observe a Movement lesson that she was teaching to her Grade R boys.

Mrs Odell’s class of 17 boys eagerly demonstrated to the 10 students, through various activities, their ability to balance, roll, throw, crawl and leap.

Kallen Carbarns and Zama Hlongwane observed Sachin Ramraj & Western Soar balancing a beanbag on their head while walking across a narrow plank.

Cordwalles Prep respecting the Environment

The theme at Cordwalles Preparatory School this term is Respecting the Environment. Together with Wildlands and Nedbank, the boys were encouraged to become superheros by being aware of recycling and saving water at home. With one piece of trash and one drip drop at a time, every small effort makes a difference. As a family are you making a difference, its the right thing to do?

Cordwalles Prep Storytelling

The Grade 4 boys at Cordwalles Preparatory School treated the Pre Primary boys to 45 minutes of story time. The boys rotated around the classrooms reading exciting stories to small groups of little boys and at the same time encouraged them to get involved in the story by counting characters, colours and shapes. It was a special time for all boys involved to bond and build relationships together.
