The door to the future is open …

Friday the 25th February was the opening of the Blomvlei Library at Blomvlei Primary School, Hanover Park. This much anticipated event was celebrated with spiritual dance By past school pupils, wonderful food provided by the teachers and local community and music. The guest of Honour was the US Consulate General of the USA in Cape Town, Dr Alberta Mayberry who addressed the children on the wonder and joy reading and a library can bring to their lives.

Thank you to the staff of Blomvlei Primary School who worked so hard to provide such a wonderful opening of the library. The new school library flag was raised by Grade 6 learner, Crystal Barnes, who won the flag design competition at the school.

This is a new dawn for Blomvlei Primary School and whole new world will be opened up for the learners. The TCD Trust has partnered with Equal Education who have already given the library 4000 books which have all been sorted , catagorised and labeled. Partnering together the TCD Trust and Equal Education will train the new librarian over the next couple of months and start to set up the extra mural activities in the library such as literacy development, thinking skills, business skills, career guidance and life skills for their future.

Thank you to all the Friends of the Trust who were able to join us on Friday, it was wonderful that you were able to see for yourselves this remarkable achievement. It once again confirms that we need to work together as an industry, community and country bringing meaningful, accountable and long lasting positive change to desperate communities around us.
