Easter eggs from the bottom of the students’ hearts

The executive committee of MC Experience, the student society for BCom(Communication Management) and BCom(Marketing Management) students, as well as a few of its members visited the Eleos children’s home on 23 March 2012.
The day began with the supervisor of Eleos giving the MC Experience team a brief history of how the home was established and also how the home became what it is today. This information gave the team enough insight on what to expect of the day.
Following the information session, the day’s activities commenced with the MC Experience team hiding some Easter eggs for an Easter egg hunt. The introduction of the students to the children was unique and allowed for comfortable interaction between the children and the MC Experience team. The Easter egg hunt proved to be a fun activity and all the children were very excited to find the Easter eggs. The MC Experience team was convinced that they had hidden the eggs strategically, but were outsmarted and outplayed by the youngsters. The children had no trouble finding every single hidden egg!
After the Easter egg hunt, more games were played, including ball games, Simon says and the children’s favourite: musical chairs, which resulted in healthy competition amongst the children. Prizes such as large Kit Kat bars, large Easter eggs and stuffed animals were handed out to the children.
After all the energetic running around, it was time to calm down. The MC Experience team and the children relaxed by painting two banners – one for the MC Experience office and one for the Eleos home. Both of the banners had a touch of the children’s artistic abilities, which the team appreciated.
After the busy day it was time to say goodbye with a sweet surprise: a goodie bag filled with MORE sweets, chips and juice for the children to take home. The day was a fun-filled and successful for both the children and the MC Experience team. After having so much fun at Eleos, the MC Experience team looks forward to taking part in more outreach programmes in the near future.
