Background

The residence was originally started in a tent which was also the study-hall and as a dining room and boardroom. Aunt Ousus was the House Mother. Wouter, Christa and 22 boys were in a house.  Aunt Ousus and 12 girls lived in a different house. Boys from Grade 1, took turns to fire in the donkey ( a water heating system). There was only one toilet / shower in the house for 24 people.

Education took place in the church hall and adjacent classes. Residence and school hours were organised by ringing the hand bell.

The names of the boys and girls division is named after trees.  The high school boys live in House Tamboti, the girls in house Jacaranda and the primary school boys in House Acacia.

Athletics was practiced on the lawn in front of the house and sprints practiced in the street. There was only one rugby team from u / 9 - U / 13.

Beds were welded only to find that they were too big to go through the front door! The beds had to be cut in the middle and be assembled in the house. There were 14 beds in total.

The current buildings next to the hospital was officially bought in 2012.
