Social Responsibility The future of South Africa rests in the hands of children

Little Sunbirds Pre-School

As professionals we understand the importance of education and we feel that early educational foundations are truly the most important building blocks for a successful career in any field.

The Little Sunbirds Pre-School relies on the kindness of various parties to be able to enhance the lives of the youngsters from Walmer Township. The pre-school helps Xhosa children prepare for an educational career at an English school and can cater for around 32 learners.

Because the school's aim is "affordable excellence" with very low school fees, the donations made by other parties allow the school to provide facilities and organise events much like other pre-Grade R schools do.

Quoting the Principal of Little Sunbirds, Mrs. Jenny Drake: "It is very rewarding and humbling to see what these little children are able to achieve when given a chance, so we are hugely grateful to you for partnering us in this endeavour. Some of our children from last year (2011) have been accepted at top schools in our area, and we are very proud of them."

Thembela Architects were able to provide the School with safe premises to operate from as well as funding for enhancements of the facilities for the children.

The support and business of our clients directly improve the lives of the people in our community and we would like to extend our thanks to them as well.
