Awards and rewards
There was great excitement at our annual year end Awards event, when our children received acknowledgement for their special achievements.
While some children shone in traditional areas such as sports and academics, others received prizes for good behaviour, helpfulness, effort and accomplishments in music, art and other activities.
In our eyes, all of these kids are stars – especially those who are trying hard to be brave and struggling to overcome a traumatic past. Presenting them with an award is our way of offering support and encouragement, and the knowledge that someone cares.
Every month we select a shining star from among our staff ... someone who has gone the extra mile or shown exceptional compassion and care for the children.
Then, at the end of the year, the person with the most stars receives special acknowledgement.
Last December we also presented several long service awards, including one for Fiona Duke who has been a valuable member of the JCH team for 15 years!
Grateful thanks to every one of our loving, caring staff – you are the heart of the Johannesburg Children’s Home.[ Posted 17 January 2018 ]
