Sunny Smiles Assisted Learning Centre reflected on the hive of activities and learning that the school participated in this year.

The school is a small centre situated in Radiokop that caters for children with specific special needs such behaviour, emotional, language, remedial, low spectrum autism and low spectrum Down Syndrome.

It is a place where children can learn at their own pace and to the best of their ability with individual assistance, according to Diane O’Carroll, the school principal.

Driven by their motto – ‘I can do it!’ – Diane said her biggest aim is to help children to feel confident and have good self-esteem.

Apart from embarking on successful events this year such as crafting handmade hearts for the elderly in a retirement village and collecting canned food for the Knysna fire victims, the school also hosted a concert and prize-giving event to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the establishment.

“I believe each child has done well at something this year so each child received an award,” said Diane.

A happy smile from Bongi Dube.

Learning self-control in Grade 2, most improved numeracy for Grade 1, most improved English as a second language for Grade R, most beautiful singing voice for Grade 00, most improved vocabulary for a little boy who didn’t talk for Grade 000 and the Sunshine award for the most consistent worker in Grade 1 were just some of the awards presented to the hardworking learners.
