Monday the 10th of November marked a few serious celebrations at Formosa Primary School in Plettenberg Bay. The ELSEN Unit and Resource Center of the school did not only have their Open Day, but also celebrated their 5th anniversary.
Among the guests attending the ceremony were the newly elected Western Cape Education Minister Debbie Schäferon her very first official visit to the Southern Cape.
Other guests include our Executive Mayor Cllr Memory Booysen, WCED Officials from George and Oudtshoorn, parents of ELSEN learners, many local friends and supporters, as well as Mrs Ivana Segall attending all the way from England, and 3 guests all the way from Belgium namely Suzanna Meeuws, as well as Remi and Lieve de Backer of “Born in Africa”, and the Verschuren family all the way from the Netherlands.
As a means of congratulating this Special Needs unit for the work that they do in the Bitou communities, our Executive Mayor decided to make a generous contribution towards the event.
The Formosa ELSEN Unit and Resource Center has celebrated several highlights and achievements over the past 5 years and would like to thank the Mayor as well as Bitou Municipality for their loyal support over the past few years.
We would also like to invite any person wishing to get involved by volunteering or assisting with anything for these little ones, to contact them via their website namely www.elsensa.co.za.Last published 30 March 2016
