Each year, Edu Fun organises three special programmes designed to provide the DCS learners with fun new experiences. We rely on donations to cover the costs of these events. If you would like to donate toward our Holiday Programme, Zoo Trip or Christmas Party, please visit our donation page. 

Holiday Reading, Art and Sport Programme

During the late June/early July time period, Edu Fun in partnership with Read For Africa and St. Peter's School, leads a three day Holiday Reading, Art and Sport Programme for select learners from grades 2 and 3.

In 2018, 99 learners attended the holiday programme. Each day, the students enjoyed three days of one on one customised reading lessons as well as daily art and sport sessions.  The programme was provided free of charge to the students thanks to many generous individual and corporate cash and in-kind donors as well as over fifty volunteers who gave of their time to make the programme possible. The children who attended also received breakfast, lunch and snacks each day were treated to two afternoon yoga sessions led by a teacher from Yoga4kids. 

We are very grateful for the extraordinary support we received from St. Peter’s School to make the holiday programme possible. St. Peter’s interns played a vital role throughout the programme through their leadership of the children as well as helping with the reading programme and assisting with the art and sports sessions.

Annual Zoo Trip
 
Young students living in Diepsloot do not often have the chance to travel outside of the area. The annual trip to the Joburg Zoo provides young students with a chance to enjoy time to run in the grass, enjoy fresh air and see exotic animals. Each year in September, Edu Fun volunteers take the entire grade 3 class from DCS to the zoo for a fun morning of animal viewing followed by lunch. Edu Fun covers all costs for the day including transportation, entry fee, lunch and drinks. Volunteers take the students around the zoo in small groups to view the animals.

Christmas Party
 
Each November, prior to the end of the school year, Edu Fun hosts a holiday party and graduation ceremony for the grade 3 students. Lunch is generously provided by Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated. Each student also receives a goodie bag filled with small gifts and sometimes Father Christmas even makes an appearance.
