Tsamma Land - THANK YOU

Unread postby Kgalagadi Guru » Tue Dec 18, 2012 10:37 am

During the Christmas Party for Tsamma Land the girls had a little surprise for all, this is their way in thanking ALL of you for your time, efforts and visits to the School. It caused many tears on the day and when I had to put all together it brought back tears just because it takes a kid to show you how much we have and how much to be thankful for.

Thank you all of you again our goal was reached to put a smile and the children’s faces and to make it a happy day.

Thank you so much for that. It was very, very special. It reminds me of the value of putting a smile on a child's face.
