Before: The Classroom at Red River Primary

 

In June 2011 Cecile & Boyd's started their own in-house charity division.  We were fortunate to have been introduced to Rock Girl (a charity organization) at that time, who led us to The Red River Primary School in Manenberg. 

They had an empty classroom that needed some serious help in transforming it into a "safe space" where kids could feel safe, be creative, be inspired and uplifted.

Heath Nash at Red River Primary School

 

Heath Nash came to do a few workshops with the children in our classroom before the "make over". Some interesting items were made… handbags, irons, cars etc.

Finally: Installation Time…

 

The time finally arrived: we started installing our space on the second week of October 2011. There was a alot of tearing things off the walls, sanding, filling holes, fixing and painting happening. I lived in an old oversized overall from my dad for the whole duration of the installation, and bright coloured streaks in my hair was my 'new look' from the paint spatters coming off the roller.
