Yesterday we celebrated the opening of our 124th kitchen at HJ Kroneberg Primary in Kensington. The construction and equipping of this kitchen and aftercare facility was made possible thanks to the ‘Buy-a-Brick’ donations made by the wonderful staff at Allan Gray.
The event started with the learners on our feeding programme singing the national anthem and their school song. The Grade 2’s presented a poem. Speeches were made by Mr Cupido, the principal of HJ Kroneberg Primary, Samantha Williams the school secretary and feeding coordinator, Margarethe de Cafmeyer from Allan Gray and PSFA director, Petrina Pakoe.
The learners and special guests then gathered at the entrance to the new kitchen where Margarethe and one of the learners cut the ribbon at the door. Petrina handed the keys to the kitchen to Mr Cupido.
The children then entered with great delight and enjoyed their lunch in a warm, clean, sheltered and safe environment followed by a cup cake thanks to Allan Gray.
