Thursday, 19 April 2016: The learners and educators of The Fynbos Academy could barely contain their excitement at recently being gifted with a first-of-its-kind Trolley Library, filled with a variety of educational material, from benefactor AVBOB.

The specially held handover ceremony that took place at the school’s premises in Papiesvlei, Stanford was well supported and marked by the presence of AVBOB’s Group CEO Frik Rademan, Overstrand’s Executive Mayor Nicolette Botha-Guthrie, as well as a number of education luminaries and interested community members.

The generous donation came about after the Mayor informed Rademan of the school’s need for books and educational aids following her visit to the facility early last year.

In his keynote address, Rademan stated, “To date we’ve donated thousands of books and various educational aids to 31 schools, but the Fynbos Academy is the first to receive a Trolley Library - brainchild of our Group Communication Manager, Marius du Plessis – aimed at assisting smaller schools like this.”

Lede van Overstrand se Junior Stadsraad kry tydens hul oriëntasietoer van die area, goeie blootstelling van die munisipaliteit se betrokkenheid by sake wat mense se daaglikse lewe raak

Die program word namens die munisipaliteit deur Enlighten Education Trust bedryf en Unity Mtomile is die bestuurder daarvan. Riana Steenekamp, media-koӧrdineerder van die Munisipaliteit Overstrand het die toergroep vergesel op Dinsdag, 10 Mei toe Stanford en Gansbaai se fasiliteite besoek is.

Unfortunately time did not allow for a historic walk through the central core of Stanford, featuring an assortment of renovated cottages, and proclaimed as heritage site. But we manage to drive pass the original market square dating back to 1785 as well as the graveyard, the Communal Sport Centre and Community Hall (also known as Die Stoor), Die Oog Domestic Water Source and the informal settlement at Die Kop.
