Sea Vista school kids were treated to a fun play at the Sea Vista Sports Field yesterday by the Kouga Wind Farm. A huge tent was erected at the Sports’ grounds where several dignitaries assembled to hear an address by the CEO of the Wind Farm, Lukhanyo Ndube and other speakers.
The Wind Farm has spent around R1-million on community projects and corporate social investment over the past four years. The Sea Vista schools are among the beneficiaries as is the school in Oyster Bay. A special entertainment programme involving two fun entertainers had the children and the adults enrapt. Some of the children acted out the benefits of a wind farm, such as electricity and water by waving coloured streamers on a stage, while the rest clapped and swayed to the music in the front of the stage.
There was an address by Ndube, Clr Booi Koerat on behalf of the Kouga Mayor, Daphne Kettledas, and by the Ward Clr, Ben Rheeder, and other wind farm personnel. The children were told they could all aspire to great heights through education and could also become CEOs of companies. They were encouraged to excel in Maths and get their matric diplomas.
Another similar entertaining event will be held for the Oyster Bay school children today.
