Willowton Bakery School gives back to PCH
The Willowton Group recently opened a bakery school within their premises. This is lovely programme which seeks to upskill young people who have a passion for baking during a training programme on site. In the month of February the students baked cupcakes as well as one tier cakes and donated them to PCH.
The Management together with our Children send our heartfelt gratitude to the Willowton group as well as these devoted and talented students for considering us.
LeChic parlor pampers PCH….
Terene Thomas, the owner of Le chic organized by Samcom took the time to pamper the ladies and gentlemen of PCH. This was a lovely surprise as it was the month of Love. The ladies got their nails done and followed by a much needed hand massage whilst the gents received haircuts and beard trimming  by Le Chic’s qualified barber. Not only was this a great way to spend the day but some of us had our first experience of having our nails done! A huge gesture of gratitude goes to Le Chic, Samcom as well as our General Manager for organizing this lovely day for us.
Thanking our Board Members for going an extra-mile…
PCH is blessed to have board members that go an extra mile to assist the Children with their school work. Jacqui and Jenny-both educators by profession took the initiative to provide extra lessons for our Children. The lessons take place after school when the kids have had their lunch and settled down as well as on weekends.
This extra tuition will prove worthwhile for our children as it focuses on each child’s needs in a smaller group 
Team Building
PCH consist of 26 staff members and it is important to ensure that Team building exercises are held as they do not only build strength among the team but build continuous trust and ÜBUMBANO ( togetherness). A huge appreciation goes to Miss Mashoko for organising this for staff as part of our Valentines Day Celebrations.
PCH Under 17 Opens the Astro League with a Bang…
The season had been closed due to Examinations and that may have raised concerns that our boys will slacken with their training however this wasn’t the case! First game back on a pitch saw PCH under 17 taking a win of 4 goals against the Young Colonials who managed to get 2 goals, thus showing that the spare time they had was being utilized properly to train hard. Well done to our team – trusting that this was the first of many wins. 
The Class of 2019 seemed to have been the year of Fortunes. This month’s success story began in the year 2007 when this vibrant young man joined PCH. Like most of the other Children placed in our care due to certain circumstances, he proved that “its not about where you come from but about where you are going”. Under the care of our dedicated Child and Youth Care workers as well as guidance from the Management team SF excelled with his school work. From the tender age he displayed his love for rap music. During his stay at PCH whenever there were programmes he would enter himself and bless everyone with the music he had originally compiled. His results at school did not disappoint as well, as he ended up of being 1 of the students who did exceedingly well in his Matric year. He was accepted at Creative Arts College to further his studies in Sound and Music Production which is his passion.
PCH wishes him nothing but the best and our continued support is provided to him as he embarks on this new journey.
