Salome Lebepe, a resident of Relela village Zone G, applauded the Principal and his team for being good Samaritans to the learners.
” I am very much happy to be a recipient of these school shoes on behalf of my child,” she further told Tzaneen voice.
According to the SGB chairperson, Ivan Mokati, this initiative is all about helping orphans and disadvantaged learners, whose parents or guardians cannot afford school uniforms and other learning necessities.
He further said that the school has a clear vision of bridging the gap between needy learners and those who can afford a similar learning position.
In conclusion, Mokati strongly advised others to have a vision and commitment towards changing the destitute positions of the learners.
