A few members of the Sneaker LAB team recently paid the school a visit to learn more about how we will be helping them over the next year!
Velensky explained to us that the school identifies the children that need to be fed based on certain criteria, for example, fainting and constant fatigue. The number of children the school feeds varies, often depending on the identification and circumstance.
We had the pleasure of meeting Maggie, the school’s chef! She prepares two hearty and healthy meals a day for each child. The school has a small vegetable garden that the grade four pupils planted and take care of. This teaches them the importance of nutrition and gives them an understanding of responsibility. Whatever is grown in this garden is added to the meals that Maggie makes.
Portia Primary embraces their ‘Africanacity’ with the diversity of their students, having students from NINE different African counties.
We look forward to a successful year together!
