What a wonderful first day, term 3 here we come. After a long June break, we received mostly negative feedback from our girls. The community children were held hostage in their homes due to gang violence and shootings nearly everyday. News24 Reported after a 12 year old boy was shot dead in Kensington, says, “This boy is a second victim to die this week following that of an alleged third gang member that was killed on Sunday. He is also a second minor to be killed in alleged gang shootings that has been ongoing for almost two months.” 2017-07-27 11:15 Reporter:Nomzamo Yuku @nomzamoyuku
Playtime Daycare Centre DOD CLUB
Excitement erupted as we entered Playtime Daycare on Tuesday morning, “teacher Lynn is here! teacher Lynn is here!” Daughters of Destiny time. First day of DOD club term 3 and first day of August, women’s month. We spent the morning affirming and reminding our girls that they are beautiful and loved. A few refreshers to remind them on the previous term’s work and lots of funny dance moves. Excited to start our women’s month filled with special activities for our little women. Next week we pamper, watch this space.
Skepe Plein DOD CLUB
What a proud day seeing all our girls come up to DOD today, in the midst of a scary two months for children in our community. Girls and boys falling prey to multiple shootings in the area and killings in their near surroundings.
We started with a dance to set the tone for the day, and affirmations of love one, to another. Wow did they take the stage today, tall and proud as they prepared for their presentation day coming up soon. Spent more time bringing order than usual, but we are confident that next week they will be more settled. Planning and more planning, the only group that has a couple of leaders who come prepared with program plans and suggestions for outings. We smiled as Maxine Appollis and Karly–Leigh Stanford already planned a picnic on our behalf. Picnic it is, 16 August 2017, will you help us make it happen?
Your contributions of any kind will be much appreciated. Call us today! Lynn Joseph 0726391711

Uniting daughters to achieve their destiny!
