It is always the short moments that dictates the future…

A very capable tutor from Tswelopele Nursing School

Taking into action this very historic day.

Delivering with a very proud smile

His very well received gift,

Making a difference on Mandela day

A gift for the elderly…

A very big Thank You!

Partnership in training with Tswelopele Nursing School



Tswelopele is a private nursing school in the West Rand for the main purpose of creating more clinical facilities for experiential learning.

La Reynette Centre (LAR) creates the platform for Tswelopele workshops on Wednesdays.

Health care assistance include:

–          Feeding of patients

–          Physical and Psychological rehabilitation


Nursing procedures:

–          Bed wash

–          Turning of patients etc. are amongst the 11 procedures


The monitoring & evaluation of students are done by themselves and seniors on duty including clinical co-ordination.


Student Nurse Trainer Grace Diseko, has been a welcomed face at LAR since February 2007. Grace’s love for the industry matches her wealth of knowledge she passes on to students. Practical intern training is one of the compulsory aspects any medical institution has to comply with. Ms Diseko always gives support to the trainees to ensure that they comply with the set standards.

At LAR we feel blessed to be a platform for the training of aspiring Care Givers and auxiliary’s alike. We hope that the relationship between us and Tswelopele will grow from strength to strength. Roberta Hofmeyr, one of our patients, could not stop singing the praize’s of one of their auxiliary students.
