Jubilee House Pancake Day 

“Ma’am I forgot to make the pancake batter!”

“No way, James, I cannot believe you. You’re teasing me.”

“How do you know, Ma’am,” a small smile.

“Because I know you would never let me down. I trust you completely!”

Isn’t it wonderful when you just know that something will come together at Oakhill? No sooner had the first bell rung than the quad was a buzz of making and selling pancakes. The aroma of hot batter and cinnamon filled the air and Jubilee students learned to make their first pancakes. Mr Botha, Mrs Lifson and Mr Langman were in the thick of it, encouraging their Mentor Groups to action. This small challenge turned into a wonderfully successful endeavor. We ended the day entirely satisfied that we could send off R900 – an amount that will feed 90 children inSomalia!

“Music in the Blue” at Oakhill Reaches Out 

On Tuesday afternoon, 16th August, theOakhillSchoolhall was filled with friends from Vermont, Loeriehof, Epilepsy S.A., Hospice,LeisureGardens, Garden Gates andBelvidereParkwho had been invited to come and enjoy some musical joy. 

And what a joy it was! Our talented College students provided them with some first class entertainment and there was no doubt that the audience were thoroughly absorbed by the melodies and wonderful memories that some of the songs provoked.

At interval the Oakhill student hostesses served our visitors with tea and delicious snacks, attending to them graciously and happy to have this opportunity to get involved in such a wonderful outreach programme. 

When asked about the concert, both Kath Savin and Elize Terblans, from Garden Gates, commented that they attend every year and just love it! 

Johanna Zondagh, who has worked at the Vermont Home for many years, shared that it was a pleasure to be at Oakhill and that they were enjoying the lovely music.

Una Keyser from Epilepsy SA, whilst enjoying her tea and snacks, had the following to say: “They sing so beautifully. Thank you for inviting me.”

We look forward to seeing our friends again at next year’s performance. They will be back!
