The Academy has been busy working on organising a fundraiser to raise awareness and much needed funds to continue this great work. This Friday there is a quiz night in Somerset West with fifteen different tables booked, all hoping to win but also committed to supporting the Helderberg Academy’s work.
Since coming back after the Christmas break, we have taught two life skills – service and focus. The children learnt a lot from the service lessons, so much so that they kept referring back to the things we had taught them.
Our current lifeskill focus has also been excellent, they have learnt the importance of ignoring distractions and focusing all of their energy on one task. Although, they have not yet mastered this skill, they are continuing to improve in this area.
