The annual Tyger Valley College Grade 2 Boschkop outreach was planned for the 23rd March 2018 and there was much excitement in the air as the Grade 2 Tyger Valley learners were keen to make new friends with the Grade 2 learners from Boschkop who were to come visit for the day. Unfortunately, as much as we appreciated the rainfall, the 125 Grade 2 Boschkop Primary pupils were unable to join us due to the flooding on the roads. The enthusiastic volunteering TVC parents still took on the task of packing 130 backpacks with juice, a water bottle, a lunchbox with a sandwich, a reading book, 1kg mealie meal, stationery, toys, fruit and popcorn. These backpacks were then delivered to Boschkop Primary to be distributed to the Grade 2’s along with a pie, fruit and juice for lunch. The TVC Grade 2’s were understandably disappointed about not being able to welcome the Boschkop pupils, however they brightened up when they were still able to enjoy the planned baking activities with Marie biscuits, icing and sweets.
We would like to thank you each and every Tyger Valley College Family who donated to this worthy cause and who were able to experience that “it is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35).
