Martha's Explorer Educare

Bishops Diocesan College

Bishops - Paint & Play

18 students from Kidd House at Bishops Diocesan College volunteered their time on Monday 3rd & Tuesday 4th December at our Sisanda FunDaytion Connect programme, working with 35 children from Martha’s Explorer Educare Centre in Blue Downs. As part of their Community Service programme, the students aged 16-18 years spent 2 days working at the Educare to renovate the classroom, baby’s nursery, clear the garden of rubble and participate in reading activities with the children.

Thank you Bishops Diocesan College for fundraising to contribute towards this fantastic DIY Service project at Martha’s Explorer Educare and for volunteering their time. Each individual worked extremely hard to ensure we could complete our tasks, and spend some quality 1:1 time with the children. They were faced with various challenges along the way, which led some of the boys out of their comfort zones, however they worked together as a team to solve problems and overcome the various obstacles in their way.

Thank you to Mandalay Coatings for very generously sponsoring us 8 tins of paint to redecorate the classrooms, Martha and the children love having a clean, bright space!

Connect is such a special programme that opens doors for young volunteers and connects them with younger children from disadvantaged communities who are in need of additional support.
