SOS Africa Mahikeng Christmas Party & Graduation Celebrations
20 Dec 2018
At the end of every school year, SOS Africa Mahikeng Manager, Jenny Matthews (AKA "mum") throws a big Christmas party for all our staff and children, past and present...
As is tradition, this has to involve a swimming pool, games and lots of laughter!
It is also an emotional time when we say farewell to students graduating from our programme. After being part of the SOS Africa Education Programme for 12 years, we bid a fond farewell to Obu and Othu (AKA "The Twins") and Kgalalelo - each were presented with leavers books filled with photos taken since their first day at school in 2006!
It is definitely "farewell" not "goodbye" though as all our graduates will be invited back to our next Christmas Party - this year we welcomed back Mavis, Olebogeng and Kelebogile.
Our staff and children would like wish you all a very Merry Christmas and thank you for your support throughout the year!
