Last week some Ogilvians spent their 67 minutes re-painting the girls and boys toilets at Reshomile Primary School in Diepsloot. Thandeka Ndidi writes about their experience: With paint in our hair and on our faces and clothes the spirit of giving back was contagiously spreading through to everyone.


Smiles all around as paint brushes were dipped into paint and a fresh new coat was painted on to the walls. Surely the boys and girls will be smiling at the bright walls of their toilets. To thank us the learners broke into song and dance enabling us all to practice one of our 8 habits – Playfulness as we all joined in too. To end of the 67 minutes we had dedicated to the school, we handed over learning charts, encyclopedias and other educational materials to the learners.
