Grace College group work and adventure
Grace College’s Grade 11 students attended a successful adventure camp at Greystone in Estcourt. Paintball, problem solving, raft building, group work and high rope climbing were a cinch for some and for others the activities pushed them beyond their comfort zone. We applaud all for their enthusiastic participation.
Grace College pupils provide extra hands for Emandleni Vegetable Garden
Kitted out with gardening tools, seedlings and plenty of packets of seeds which had been generously given by the Grace College staff, a team of Grade 8 and 9 pupils headed to Emandleni Creche Vegetable Garden. There they found a very large vegetable garden that was being managed by a handful of elderly ladies. These Gogos sell the vegetables to raise money for the creche and community.
They set to work as an efficient team and ploughed, prepared and planted a field with 52 new rows of vegetables! These experience gardeners were happy to pass on their gardening wisdom.
Since the garden has no taps, the boys took on the task of repeatedly filling large drums with water to irrigate the newly planted vegetables.
The students worked tirelessly with enthusiasm all morning. The Gogos repeatedly voiced their gratitude to the Grace College work force who are committed to an ongoing relationship of service to this community.
