The Youth Development Programme (or Youth Club) as it is becoming known, is being held once a month at Talhado Children’s Haven with the aim of providing positive and instructive fun afternoons for the Sea Vista children. The children who attend range in age from 8 to 15.
Very few of these children have ever had any exposure to board games and as we all know how useful these games can be in developing cognitive skills and in assisting mathematical understanding we would like to introduce these to our afternoon’s activities.
We are appealing to the public for donations of board games – anything from Snakes and Ladders to Chess – and puzzles for all ages.
Anyone keen to help can drop their donation at Viking Bakery or St Francis Liquor Store where we will arrange collection.
If anyone would like to assist in teaching these games to the children, please contact Jenny Suter on 079-090-9548
