Christmas arrived early in Loeriesfontein this year! Marking Universal Children’s Day, and one year of operations, Loeriesfontein Wind Farm and Khobab Wind Farm celebrated with over 400 children from two ECD centres (Loerievinkie and Skilpaaitjielaan Dagsorg) and Loeriesfontein Primary School.
“These events celebrate the importance of promoting and safeguarding the rights of a child; recognising children as active participants in their own lives and communities; and as active citizens who can meaningfully contribute to their own decision-making,” explained Vanessa Fredericks, Economic Development Manager for Loeriesfontein Wind Farm and Khobab Wind Farm.
The children’s Christmas party included various activities including face painting, a play dough station and a larger-than-life game of rock paper scissors, popcorn machines, bubble machines and jumping castles.
“The day ended off on a high note with Santa Claus handing out Christmas gifts to each child from the two ECD centres and from Loeriesfontein Primary School,” added Fredericks.
The festivities continued with a disco party on Saturday night for the high school learners at Loeriesfontein High School. Loeriesfontein’s very own DJ Lorenzo kept the crowd entertained and dancing.
