There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children

Honeycomb Family Fun Day

We had a wonderful Honeycomb Family Fun Day with 45 boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 6 years old from Siziwe Educare Centre in Gugulethu on Saturday the 10th of November 2012. Siziwe currently has 60 children attending their preschool between the ages of 2 and 6 years old all from the Gugulethu community. Honeycomb and Siziwe have a long-standing relationship of support but this was the first time that the two schools were able to get the children together for a day of FUN!

The children from Siziwe were paired with adult volunteers (Honeycomb staff and a few parents) and for the FUN part of the Fun Day we headed off to Hout Bay to check out the array of wildlife at the World of Birds before going to Hout Bay beach to have a picnic, splash in the water, build sandcastles and eat ice lollies. We'd extended the invitation to all Honeycomb friends and families to  join our Fun Day and we so happy to have the children all playing together. They really had so much fun and were elated to have made news friends whether they spoke the same language or not. On the ride home the children were so tuckered out that most of them feel sweetly asleep!
