In December, the hills rang out with the sound of Cotlands graduation parties! We waved goodbye to 148 graduates in KZN, 93 in the Western Cape, 155 in Mpumalanga and Limpopo, and 91 in Barberton.
Parents came from far and wide to join the celebrations. They watched proudly as their children received their certificates and end-of-year reports.
Our parents from Mpumalanga and Limpopo were so excited that they organised a cake, a guest speaker and a band with singing and dancing. We were delighted to see such an enthusiastic response to this milestone.
They clearly understand that Cotlands children will have a huge advantage when they go into Grade R. In fact, an independent study has confirmed that our playgroup model improves the school readiness scores of children by a whopping 20%!
Thanks to our donors for
giving children this amazing advantage.
