ROTARY - SIGN_GOLDEN_HOURS sign smallIn the heart of Durban North is a very special school for very special children.  Golden Hours is a school for special needs children and also provides boarding facilities for 60 of these children.

The Rotary Club of Durban North is proud to support this facility which is ably and lovingly managed by the headmistress Rowan Hornby.

The club has provided R178 000.00 worth of furniture for the dormitories, replacing the ageing and mismatched cupboards and beds in both the girls and the boys dormitories.

Local companies and community members have subsequently painted the hostel and added some beautiful, homely additions such as wall murals.

The club also provides small gifts for each of the children when it is their birthday and every effort is made, together with the Durban North community, to provide the goods requested by the Golden Hours teachers.

Gifts are given to each child on their birthday
