This programme is the initiative of Ms Claude Pillai, an educator at the Open Air School, together with her son, Jordan Pillai, a Grade 11 DHS climber. Last Friday, I was privileged to watch Jordan together with Lindani Msomi and Langelihle Sosibo, help these little learners with amazing sensitivity and insight. The Open Air learners are benefitting enormously and seemed to thoroughly enjoy the experience, while the DHS climbers have enjoyed the high energy levels and the challenge. It is hoped that perhaps this small group of F. phase learners will reach much higher levels with the support of their “big brothers” at DHS.
