Long, long ago, before Little Star was even a twinkle in anyone's eye, back in the halcyon days of Fr Jim O'Byrne, when the classrooms were built by the parish (thanks to generous Irish sponsorship) the then parish pastoral council saw fit to name each of the classrooms after a stalwart parishioner.
I draw your attention to the name on the door of Red Group: Kitty King. Kitty is related to me, in a manner of speaking. She is my husband's paternal grandmother.
Kitty was a Professor of English at the University of Natal, Durban (as it was called back then). When Kitty retired one of the things she did was to start a small education centre for domestic workers. It was called 'The Centre of Concern' and it ran for many years until her death. Both Philip and I taught at the centre.

Apologies for the delay. Pics are now up for both the Easter Bonnet Parade and Heritage Day.
Thanks go to Uncle Fred (Dee's husband) for taking the pics.
Sadly, there's no pics of Aunty Dee doing a Boeredans... Maybe next year.
As you're probably well aware, the government has promulgated two Acts designed to protect the consumer.
These two Acts might have some impact on Little Star. They are the Consumer Protection Act (CP) and the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI).
If anyone can help us to bring Little Star up-to-code with these two Acts, we would really appreciate your help. (We were approached by SEESA but they want an arm and a leg.)
We decided to give the old printer to Multi-Machines. Greg said they would try fix it and donate it. Good bloke, Greg.
Things break down. After five years, our printer has decided to finally throw in the towel and fail irreparably. Well, by irreparably I mean that it's going to cost too much for us to get it fixed - about R2000 - and they won't guarantee the repair. So, if anyone wants to take the old printer off our hands, please feel free to make us an offer. It's a Toshiba something. Come and have a look.
We're replacing it with a Konica Minolta printer on a really good monthly service rental from Multi-Machines in Warner Breach.
