Principal's story: Rita

I started in 1995, before that I worked in an engineering factory. One morning I opened the newspaper and saw an ad for prime care training. My boss sponsored my training. I spoke to my church and they opened their doors to me for 3 months, then I put a bungalow in my mom’s yard and stayed there for more than a year. I approached Lowrie Primary for space, and have been there for 8 years now. Currently, I have 3 centres. If I had the opportunity and land, I would open one big centre. All my previous parents tell me that the children excel at the different schools they attend. I transport children from 5am to the centres. The passion and love I have for these children is what gets me up every morning, even if the school fees are low and sometimes we struggle.

How to help:

Volunteer:

We need fundraising champions. Get creative – run a marathon on your front yard, host a virtual high tea, do something amazing and encourage your friends and family to change the world through early learning.

We rely on volunteers to lend a helping hand when teachers are off sick. To work in the classroom you need an up-to-date security check.

Help us get Covid-19 Ready:

We need to meet all health and safety requirements and Covid-19 protocols in order to open our centre to children in September.Our vulnerable children are missing out on wholesome meals and our love and care.

We want to offer our children a safe space where they can learn and thrive.
