A collaborative partnership between CPUT, Germany’s University of Applied Science of Osnabrueck and Guizhou University of Finance and Economics, China saw students and lecturers volunteering their services at two pre-schools in honour of Nelson Mandela Day.

Joined by officials from the local office of the Department of Social Development, the students played games with the children and cleaned and painted walls at Jack and Jill Pre-school in Durbanville. They also spent time with children at Curious Cuties Educare, Bellville South.

Meanwhile, at the Bellvile Campus staff as well as students were treated to a free cup of soup, as part of the day’s celebrations. The soup was donated by campus cateres Indiwe and the event was coordinated by Patrick Prins, from the Department of Marketing and Communication.
