It was a long-awaited goal of ours to bring all of our ECD Network members together in one place for a celebration. After expanding out of our long held home of UGU district into Alfred Nzo and Harry Gwala districts we have not managed to get members together in one place. Until now, and what a day it was, with the Deputy Minister of Basic Education as our special guest. We had full capacity in the hall of 1000 ECD practitioners and could not allow any more to attend! Minibus Taxis and buses arrived from all directions, some travelling 4 hours to get to the venue of UGU sports and leisure complex, near Gamalakhe. We danced, we sang, we ran our AGM formalities and reported back on our annual work and got inspired and encouraged by the Deputy Minister of Basic Education, Dr Reginah Mhaule. Please watch the video of some clips from the Deputy Minister’s speech and read our annual report attached.
If we instill a strong foundation in the children, we want to make sure that when they grow up they are able to grasp things because they were taught from a very early age.Deputy Minister of Basic Education, Dr Reginah Mhaule
