Hangberg Pre-Primary School opened its doors on Monday 21 July 2014 in a classroom on loan from Sentinel Primary School in Hangberg, Hout Bay, with 9 brave little boys. Now the pre-school has two classrooms with 67 registered children. To celebrate our one year anniversary, a “little party” was planned for Monday 27 July 2015.
Through Hout Bay Organised, generous volunteers baked plenty of cupcakes for the children and parents. The kids waited in silent anticipation, sang “Happy Birthday” to the school and then, in even more silence, devoured each last crumb. It was a beautifully moving sight.
The moment was captured by an independent reporter, Francesca Villette, and her very engaged photographer, Courtney Africa. So watch this space – soon to be published: Hangberg Pre-Primary turns 1!
