6 June 2009: The children of Blessed Gerard’s Children’s Home celebrated Youth Day. The day kicked off with songs from the little children, aged 4-5. The older children put on a short play highlighting abuse in the community which is very prevalent. The message from their play was, “ Let’s Stop Physical Abuse In Our Families.” A message that hopefully everyone will take to heart. There were drum majorettes, gumboot dancers, modelling, male dancers, female dancers and even a mime. The programme was fun-filled and enjoyed by all who attended. The grand finale of the programme was a short rendition from the hit musical Sarafina by our older children. This was a fitting end to our Youth Day celebrations. After their wonderful performance, the children were treated with juice, biscuits and popsicles. Who knows what future stars are here in our Home!
