Bramble Way Primary School officially opened in June 1962 – and it is fitting that the children, staff and parents celebrated the launch of a newly refurbished dining room during this special milestone year!
The school has run a feeding kitchen for many years, and the converted 12-metre shipping container dining room was in a sorry state. Breadline Africa was approached to refurbish it and of course, there was no question! The team decided to dedicate the unit to Glenys O’Malley, a long-standing and committed Breadline Africa donor.
Ms Glynis Enfield, the principal of the school, said that she couldn’t believe the extent of the dining room’s transformation and expressed her pride in the clean and hygienic new space. She added that most of the schools 513 learners received meals daily from the feeding programme and that the teachers can see the difference in the children’s ability to concentrate and learn once they have eaten a nutritious meal.
The school’s cook, Janet Carelsen thanked Breadline Africa and its donors for the beautiful new dining room and explained that the children love their new space and can’t wait to eat their meals in it every day. “They want to sit there every chance they get – even when they aren’t enjoying a meal,” she laughed.
The children can look forward to many nourishing meals in their newly refurbished container dining room!
