President Graham Finlayson, John Winship and Lukas Treitz attended the soil turning for the extension of the Oppie Koppie ECD along with representatives from Vuya and Coca-Cola Peninsula Beverages.
The ECD and the entity that started the school, Vuya Foundation, arranged a function to give thanks for the project and to celebrate its commencement. Those present included Vuya representatives; Coca Cola Peninsula Beverages; the local mayor and a councilor; staff and the headmistress; Rotary Clubs of Pinelands and Newlands and the contractor.
"We are delighted to be able to extend the capacity at the ECD. This would not be possible without the support of Vuya and CCPB.
We know that the extension will have a significant benefit to the community and provide the classrooms for children on the waiting list," says John Winship.
