Meet the team... Ivy Johnson

Ivy Johnson joined The Darling Trust in 2008 and has quickly become a leading light! Her passion and enthusiasm are contagious, and her dedication to her village is something that inspires us all.

Ivy was born in Darling and has lived here all her life. She worked for many years at the local clinic. Since retiring, she has been involved in a number of different projects. Her most recent has been as part of the iAfrica Drama Queens. This dynamic group of women write and produce their own material. They have performed at Voorkamerfest to great acclaim.

It is an honour and a privilege to work with Ivy!

Music and Art Evening - 27 May 2009

This year, instead of holding only one Music and Art Evening (music recital and art exhibition), we have decided to hold two: one mid-year and one at the end of the year. Our first Music and Art Evening for 2009 will be held on 27 May 2009 at Evita se Perron, at 19h00. Everyone is invited! Each art and music student receives two free tickets, but extra tickets are available at a cost of R5 each.

The Music and Art Evenings are a chance for the music and art students to show their family and friends just how much they have learnt. A number of our music students are doing very well, and the art students (as usual!) continue to make the most spectacular art. I've included a few photos of the art from last year to give you an idea of what to expect at the end of this month. We're so excited!
