ON 28 August 2015, another three-day TLC camp was held for a junior group of HCET learners at Poplar Grove Farm. These camps are held for learners experiencing emotional difficulties, often due to challenging circumstances at home. They are provided with various forms of support and counselling, including a range of focused leisure activities.

The support team included Erica van Lingen, a pastoral psychologist from Philippolis who counsels the children and trains the lay counsellors, and Estelle Jacobs, who – besides her role as HCET project manager — provides meals for everyone at all the camps.
