Loving beyond Self @ AACL

Tatum Walsh Clevely wrote: My life now is pretty exciting, because when we went to the AACL yesterday, I saw a kitten. I really liked it so much. I went home and told my dad about it and my dad said yes! My cousin is getting the kitten and I’m getting a puppy.  (First image on right)

Quails @ the AACL

The Quails had an awesome time playing with the rescued animals. These dogs and kittens are rehabilitated for adoption.  We also wrote thank you  letters to Mpho who works at the  Epping Branch.  Each child experienced “Living and Loving beyond Self”.


Enjoy reading the authentic letters our children wrote to Mpho. Many hearts were touched! Learning beyond the classroom in full swing!






Animal Anti Cruelty League outing

Trent from the Partridges

The Grade 4 classes organised an outing to the Animal Anti Cruelty League. The children collected old blankets,food, washing powder,toys and towels to donate to the organisation. The children listened to an informative powerpoint relating to the care of animals and the steps to take in reporting any form of abuse of animals. From there the children were allowed to explore and meet the furry animals. Both children and animals were happy to see each other. We all felt relieved to know that there is such a special place for all those animals that are mistreated.

Reaching out with a caring heart….

We celebrated Mandela Day by making a difference in the lives of children in less fortunate circumstances. Our Grade 4s have covered 240 books and made the most beautiful bookmarks for the children from Sophakama Primary School in Du Noon.

Our visit to the Animal Anti-Cruelty Leaque



Hein said, “This was one of the coolest outings. I loved Kirsty, one of the puppies. He made me feel I could save all the animals. The puppies made me feel bad that they didn’t have a home. I felt like I didn’t want to leave.”

Tegan said, “The kittens were very cute and the ginger cat lay on me. We got to hold the puppies and all the dogs wanted to be picked up. Our group went into a circle and the ladies put puppies in the circle.”

Kira said, “Our visit to the AACL was great. I’m really happy that the AACL tries to find people to adopt the animals. I felt sad that there were so many homeless animals, but I’m glad that they looked happy. The thing that I really felt happy about was that they try and take on as many animals as possible.”

Tayla said, “After we saw all the dogs, we went to see the kittens. When I hold one, it was digging its claws into me. I liked the teenager dogs as they were running around everywhere. When we left I was very sad.”

Ntsika said, “I got very excited after we arrived at AACL. We went upstairs and learnt how we should treat an animal. I felt so good when I met this amazing puppy, called Afro. I loved that puppy. Soon I will visit Afro again.”

Andreia said, “My favourite part of the outing was when I played tug-of-war with one of the dogs. I’m very happy to know animals are cared about and loved in Cape Town.”

Kaylin said, “I loved the baby puppies. My best one was Molly. She was as big as my hand.”

Pia said, “I loved the puppies because they are loving, caring and friendly.”

Jade said, “I felt a bit nervous when they got there. My favourite thing was to hold the kittens and play with them. When I got home I was crying.”

Quails @ AACL

The Grade 4s visited the Animal Anti-Cruelty League. They took along a whole lot of donations of food, bedding, pet treats and more. The children were allowed to play with some of the animals during their visit.
