Children and the Constitution

17

Constitutional Kids, a book that breaks down the Constitution in an easily understandable manner for children, was officially launched on Saturday 1 December.

Opskop for good course Opskop, a community carnival and music festival in aid of a good cause, was successfully held at Southey’s Vines in Somerset West recently. The event was made up of a bit of everything, from entertainment for the kids, a music festival by talented musicians to food stalls with a coffee lounge and a beer garden. The beneficiary of the festival was Trade-mark, a local job creation NGO that connects the best tradespeople in the townships with those who require their services. To find out more about Trademark and to get into contact with this organisation, visit www.trade-mark.co.za.

This book is the brainchild of Somerset West resident Lee-Anne Flack (28), who is also a law student at Stellenbosch University. The idea to write this book came to Lee-Anne when she did volunteer work in Nyanga and at the Food for Life school and orphanage in Vrindavan, India. According to Marida Flack, LeeAnne’s mother, the launch was a great success and it was attended by hordes of children. “All went really well with the launch. It’s a day that the kids will remember for a long time. It was filled loads fun.” She added that many of the children who attended came from children’s homes and are also known to Lee-Anne from her days volunteering in Nyanga. The children who attended were spoiled with rock climbing, canoeing, quad-biking, swimming, jumping castles, water slides, pony rides, face painting and loads more. The book is available at Vergelegen Spar in Rome Glen or phone Marida on 071 106 2247 or e-mail constitutionalkids@ymail.com.
