The City of Windhoek's Junior Council Members spent the Saturday at the Katutura Old - Age home entertaining the elderly with games such as pin the nose on the clown, ring-a-pole and bucket ball.
The Junior Council has 52 members from 26 schools - 26 active grade 11 councilors and 26 grade 10 understudies.
The highlight of the day was around the lively conversations between the juniors and the seniors. Accompanied by Emilige Van Zyl, Community Development Officer at the City of Windhoek the group also played some old school music.
The idea came after the group suggested giving the seniors something memorable leaving the elders nostalgic.
Once a year, the council visits various communities. Junior Mayor, Kambarure Kaputu, said the elderly have contributed to the development of the country through paying taxes and the liberation struggle.
"United people striving for a common goal or members of society will always remain victorious," said Kaputu quoting the Founding Father, Dr. Sam Nujoma, as once saying.
The home used to be a teacher's hostel, which later became a compound for the community before officially being turned into an old - age home in 1986.
Martha Pholoana, a supervisor at the old age home, said every now and then groups visit but they never come empty handed - they bring gifts and snacks.
Pholoana added that "people who would like to come for a visit are required to make an appointment".
The old - age home is located in Richard Tjiramba Street, Katutura - visiting hours are weekdays between 15h00 to 16h30 and on weekends between 8h00 to 15h00.
