Hundreds of pupils, parents and teachers at Ngwanamakhutje High School in Sofaya in the Sekororo area of the Maruleng Local Municipality (MLM) celebrated on Wednesday after the cellphone network giant Vodacom, made a significant donation towards their education. Vodacom donated a Personal Computer and printer during an event held at the school premises. The equipment will assist the pupils in their learning areas.
The event which took place at the school assembly was attended by teachers from the school led by the headmaster, Jacob Moagi, parents representing the School Governing Body (SGB), Vodacom representatives and the media. The donation came as a blessing to a school that was hard hit by a storm recently that removed much of the buildings’ roofs.
In an interview with Bulletin, school headmaster, Jacob Moagi said that “Vodacom people were here today to provide the school with a computer and a printer. This is going to assist in learning and teaching. As the school, we are elated because our school is one of the poorest in the area,” he said.
“As our school did not do well with matric results last year, we are going to work together with the parents and teachers to improve these results this time round. We therefore appeal to community members to take care of the little this school has. They should avoid situations where the property of the school could be stolen by members of the community.”
