Community service got off to a rather hot start on 19 February.
The Grade 10 boys and the FAST students were divided into 4 groups, of which 2 went to the Mission kitchen, 1 went to the Preschool and 1 went to the tent area behind the auditorium. On 20 February the groups swopped places.
Which groups worked the hardest is a question that remains to be answered, however, the one kitchen group who cut up pineapples, also enjoyed eating them. The group that worked behind the auditorium had the good fortune of mechanical help in the form of the Bobcat and the roller, which the group at the Preschool did not have and the sandpit had to be dug manually! Ndumiso Dumakude reckoned that they ‘worked their socks off’ and Sehliselwe Hlongwa decided that ‘community service was the hardest work that he had ever done’. Philip Meyer, however wished that it happened more often.
‘Altogether a lot was achieved and we all enjoyed being able to do something for the community and get away from the normal routine of school.’ Luke Allen
