Rochelle Malander, a principal and founder of two Creches known as Chellas Rainbow Kids (C.R.K) and Brainy Bee ECD Centre (B.B) which are based in Evander, hosted a 3rd annual sports day for kids in Kinross Sasol club on Saturday, 11 March 2023.

More than 60 children from two separate Creches took part in the event activities throughout the day, which lasted the entire afternoon to allow the children to work out their bodies and become physically and mentally healthy.

Parents flocked to the event in large numbers to support their kids as they competed against one another in separate four-house groups, which added to the excitement of the competition.

The development Center’s responsibility, according to Rochelle, is to ensure that children are adequately cared for and are in good bodily, mental, and spiritual health. As a result, similar events will continue to be held annually because it is not harmful to children.

Rochelle also plans to open other development centres around Govan Mbeki Municipality to help shape the destiny of young children. Her larger aim, however, is to open a large school that may be situated near Kinross or Evander due to the dearth of primary schools in those two areas.

“As the development centre, kids are our first priority, hence it is our duty to make sure that they are fit everywhere. Therefore, I am excited and grateful to see that my staff and I were able to successfully complete our third annual event with the support from all the parents,” said Rochelle, principal of the creaches.

Rochelle is motivated by her passion for giving back to the community and her ambition to improve the nearby places, particularly the young children in the Govan Mbeki Municipality.

“As a parent, the feeling is ecstatic to witness someone who can take care of our children as if they were her own, like the principal is doing at the Creche. We had a great time, though, and the event was fantastic and well-organized. It was worth it to provide support to our kids since they needed us as parents,” said Gugu Mabuza, one of the parents.
