New Learning Stations For Tlhopane Primary Schoolon April 26, 2011
As a part of our ever-evolving corporate social investment programmes, we recently paid a visit to a school located not too far from the beautiful Sun City resort. Tlhopane Primary School is situated in Brits and is a no-fee school that has over 700 learners from Grade R all the way through to Grade 7. Although there are only 18 teachers on board and many students to one classroom, the school has received numerous accolades and exceptional results from their learners who are dedicated to succeeding.
We thought they were an extremely worthy group of recipients for new classroom equipment, so we delivered a mass of new school desks and chairs together with clothing for the learners and their families. With such willing students it seems only fair that they be given improved conditions within which to study and achieve their goals; they were thrilled with the new additions to their classrooms. We also supplied the children with a delicious, nutritious lunch that was pre-arranged and packed by the chefs at our resort.
The handover event was attended by the Deputy Minister of Basic Education Mr Enver Surty, as well as the MEC for Education in the North West Province, Mr Raymond Elisha. The Chief from Makau, Kgosi Motsepe and the Executive Mayor for Madibeng, Mrs. Molokoane-Machika was also in attendance, representing previous Chief Bakgatla ba Mmakau Malatse Matthew Motsepe who opened the school in 1965.
Quoting from the Freedom Charter, Mrs Mathebula, principal of Tlhophane stated: “The doors of learning are open…” we are more than positive that learning will be a lot smoother and more comfortable for the students of Tlhopane from here on out.
The school is currently calling on the corporate sector to donate computers for their E-learning Centre. If you can help, please get in touch with us. To view photos of the event, click here.
