Rustenburg – Rustenburg Police members of the K9 unit and social crime prevention and sector policing paid a visit to the School for Extraordinary Education on Monday, 23 July, in honour of late president Nelson Mandela’s centenary. 

Police spokesperson captain Elsabè Augoustides told Platinum Weekly that the educational visit targeted learners with down syndrome and autism.

In one of the sessions K9 warrant officer Johan Els gave a lesson to the children on the dangers of wandering off without supervision. 

Captain Augoustides addressed the group on personal safety issues and Zelda Massyn of Vision of Hope held a puppet show, with a specific theme on child safety.  

“It was a tremendous experience to see the kids, excited and thrilled, when members of the mounted unit galloped into the school with their horses. The therapeutic benefits of interacting with the animals were also explained to the learners,” said captain Augoustides.

Three Star Cash & Carry donated candy and cold drinks for the event.
