Our 2019 ECD children enjoyed a unique experience in the 4th term of this year when they became the beneficiaries of Water Safety classes offered by Kenosis supporter Kath Boast. Kath is a well known local swimming coach and runs Swim Chix in Pietermaritzburg. She has many years of experience training local children to swim, but in the last few years has focussed more on swimming training for adults. Kath heard about Kenosis through the Hilton College Tries for Lives programme and felt prompted to offer herself once a week to provide classes for our little pre-schoolers as she really missed working with children.
Not only did Kath offer her services free of charge, she also rallied the swimming coaches of Pietermaritzburg to sponsor free costumes for the children and found a friend who was willing to sponsor the costs of the pool entry fees for the term. And local transport company, Maharaj’s Coaches came to the party too with an amazing offer of free transportation once a week to and from the pool in Pine Street, Pietermaritzburg. Huge thanks to Kath Boast, The Pmb swimming coaches, Wynn Smith of Evangrass and Maharaj’s coaches for your generosity to our children and for making Tuesdays the favourite day of the week!!
