Trinityhouse Preparatory and High School Randpark Ridge  took part in their annual 67 Minutes for Mandela Day initiatives.

The preparatory school participated in a soup-making initiative during which the youngsters washed, peeled and grated various vegetables. Once grated and collected, the vegetables were taken home by a number of generous parents who cooked the vegetables into a delicious soup.

Marketing officer, Robyn Aingworth, said Sunbake donated 100 loaves of bread which were added to the 100 loaves donated by the school. “During assembly on 28 July, Trinityhouse Preparatory handed over 600 litres of vegetable soup and 200 loaves of bread to Kids Haven,” said Aingworth.

She added that the high school supported Mandela Day as they collected lunch packs and beanies. The lunch packs were prepared by the students and packed during school. Aingworth explained that 1 368 lunch packs and 633 beanies were donated to 17 different schools in Zandspruit, Kya Sands, Cosmo City and Soweto.

Trinityhouse Preparatory classes grate some vegetables.

 

“A number of teachers and students dropped off the items at the various schools and were welcomed with big smiles and many hugs.”

Aingworth concluded that it was great to see all the children, staff and parents supporting Mandela Day and made a difference in the community.
