More comfort for Les Mamelles crèche children


28-May-2009

The hand over of the benches


The handover ceremony took place at the crèche recently in the presence of the primary school’s headteacher, Cyril Pillay, parents, teachers and students, members of the committee and youth workers at Les Mamelles.

Mr Pillay accepted the donation of five benches from one of the youth workers, Simon Barra.
The committee also gave a set of new pencil cases to children at the crèche, some of whom sang songs and recited poems for the audience.

The donation was organised as part of activities to mark Global Youth Service Day, a worldwide event that celebrates the contribution of young people to their communities.

A competition to paint the donated benches was held from March 23 to April 9 under the national theme Koste Seselwa (Come Together Seychellois) for Plaisance secondary students, working in pairs. 

Several criteria, such as creativity and application of colours, were used by the art teachers to judge the designs on the benches.

Those who took part in the competition were presented with certificates after the handover, and the three best pairs also received cash prizes.
