The Siyabulela Toy Drive was the last service drive initiated by the Service Committee of 2011/2012. The drive centred on providing presents for the children of Siybulela Pre-Primary School in Kleinmond, who will be completing the Primary School phase later this year. The presents given to these children are a wonderful farewell gift for them, as they move on to “Big School”.

What was most noticeable about this drive was that every child who received a present was more than just a name or number on a list. Our Wynberg Girls were given 100 photos of the primary school students and they could decide for whom they wanted to buy a gift. In community service we often look at the statistics to assess our achievements more than we spend time looking at the lives of people for whom we are doing the service. It was because of this “human” element that the drive was so successful.

The Service Committee of 2012/2013 took in all the presents and were in awe of the number of presents bought by the Wynberg family. Thank you to everyone who has bought a gift for a student at Siyabulela. Your generosity is much appreciated.
