Blomvlei Library almost completed !

It was a very cold start to the day last Saturday morning at Blomvlei Primary School in Hanover Park where pupils, teachers and parents came out to make their hand prints for the library mural. The hand prints will make mural which will run around the outside walls of the library.

The children had a choice of colours to choose from to make their hand prints on a tile, pink and blue seemed to be the most popular colours by far. Once the children and adults had made their hand prints they then wrote their names on the tiles and a long lasting memory of their contribution to the Blomvlei Library was made.

The school managed to raise R2 500.00 selling hand prints at R10.00 per child and R20.00 per adult. In addition hot dogs, cold drinks and tea and coffee were sold by the teachers. The money will be used towards equipping the library once construction is completed at the end of August 2010.

The Library is looking absolutely beautiful, especially now that brightly coloured walls and floors have been painted. The finishing touches will be done over the next couple of weeks and we have no doubt that it is one of the most beautiful school libraries in the country, something that the pupils and staff of Blomvlei Primary school are already extremely proud of.

Thank you to all our Friends of the Trust, without your continued support this would not be possible.
