When Creativity and Self-discovery meet

OCTOBER 2021

We were delighted to hear the very positive feedback from participants, our team members in attendance as well as our service provider, Spieƫl Collective, about the 'Ontdek' / Discover programme that was presented to high school learners on a number of our partner farms. De Vlei and De Hoop farms in De Doorns went through this process.

This particular programme consists of 4 sessions of 2 hours each with Grade 6 to Grade 12 learners. The creative skills of learners are stimulated by using the mediums of drama, art and music during the sessions. The learners are encouraged to participate in a journey of discovery and communicate about their past, present and future, answering questions by revealing it through creative outlets.

Regional Coordinator, Eleanor Louw, as well as our Manager Monitoring & Evaluation, Caroline Poole attended the sessions in De Doorns. To find out more about this programme, please feel free to contact our office.
