TEKKIE DAY 2014
Tekkie Day is a new phenomenon on the South African educational and corporate scene. The idea behind tekkie day is that people wear tekkies with multi-colourered laces on that day. The laces are purchased and the money that is collected in this way is then donated to some worthy cause.
On Friday 30 May the learners of Sedaven Primary school all purchased a set of laces for their tekkies. The school also declared a "civies" day and all learners thus came to school wearing brightly coloured clothes and tekkies. The school also announced a "Mr and Miss Tekkies" competition. There were four criteria that were considered in choosing the winners, namely: Creativity in selecting clothes, colourful choice of clothes, smartness of dress and finally each candidate had to make a short impromptu speach explaining the purpose of being involved in a welfare project.
Staff and learners enjoyed "Tekkie Day - 2014" and an amount of more than R3000.00 was collected and donated to th local branch of the "Meals on Wheels" welfare service.
The local newspaper: "The Heidelberg Heraut" covered both the launch and the conclusion of this lovely innovative project.
We believe that organizing for our learners to be involved in "Tekkie Day - 2014", has created an awareness of the great needs of many people in our country and given our learners an opportunity the to serve others, thus fullfilling our mission as expressed in the school motto: "Non sibi sed Deo - Not for slf, but for God"
