Spreading a Christmas cheer

26 November 2019 | Youth

Leandrea Louw

The staff and partners of Financial Consulting Services (FCS) in Walvis Bay and Swakopmund gave the pre-primary learners of Hanganeni Primary School in Swakopmund early Christmas gifts.

Each of the 52 learners in the two pre-primary classes received a Christmas box filled with stationery, toiletries, clothes and toys. They also received sweets packets as well as a slice of cake.

This is done annually by the FCS where staff members pitch in and fill the Christmas boxes. Previously they worked closely with those spearheading the Santa Shoe Box initiative. However, this year they decided to distribute the gifts on their own to make it a more personal experience. Last year FCS gave presents to Swakopmund Primary School.

Hanganeni Primary School caters for 1 210 learners from Grade 0 up to Grade 7. It was established in 2004 and caters for learners of the surrounding areas of Mondesa and DRC.
