ECD Graduation

ECD Graduation. Richard Alexander once stated that early childhood education has been the most effective economic development tool available to countries.

On the 4th of May, Thol’ulwazi Thol’impilo Network (TTN) finished their ECD (Early Childhood Development) Training course and held a graduation ceremony. The training was conducted on the Bloemendal Farm from the 29th of April to the 4th of May and, even though it was very busy, it was a huge success.

During the graduation ceremony, the ladies hosted a puppet show with the dolls they made the previous day. The best puppet was chosen and the performance was repeated that same evening. After the spectacular show, it was time to make play dough.

The ladies had the chance to make their own dough, under the watchful eye of teacher, Thandi Meimane, and they made the most creative and colourful shapes and animals out of the dough. After a scrumptious lunch, the ladies departed to get ready for the evening’s event where Laura Coetzee from T.U.T. (Tshwane University of Technology) and a few Dutch students arrived to hand out their certificates.

The members from TTN would like to use this opportunity to thank all their sponsors and the people who sent the ladies for the training. They have indeed learnt a lot and will be able to implement their knowledge at the crèches where they work. Thank you to Callie and Melanie van der Merwe for their hospitality and the delicious food, and for Pearl Khumalo and Sarah Mtshali for their hard work and translation – you are stars!
