Volunteers from Nyanga and Makhaza were treated to a fun day at Ratanga Junction on Saturday 8 December 2012. The occasion was the tutor appreciation, held twice each year to acknowledge our biggest donors, the tutors, who give so much of their valuable time to IY, and are the cornerstone of the work we do.

The tutors were joined by staff members, Shuvai, Asanda, Zukile, Brandon and Marion and everyone had a great time, getting onto dizzying and sometimes scary rides; all the while having a good time. Although tastes and preferences differed, there was general consensus that the Cobra, Ratanga’s popular roller coaster was a good ride, together with the water rides which got everyone soaking wet.  The tutors spoke about their plans for the holiday and gave assurances that they will be around to celebrate the Grade 12 results on the 3rd of January 2013. The day was one of great fun, much laughter, bonding and served as a great team-building exercise, as the volunteers and staff played and ate together.

A huge thank you to all our tutors and to Ratanga Junction for your support.
