Selfless students of Selbourne

VEREENIGING.-The Selbourne Primary School students and educators realized that there are a lot of needy people out there and decided to present the 21 residents in Vereeniging at old hospital, with early Christmas gifts on Friday. These students and educators embarked on a project to feed the needy.

Fundraising was conducted prior to the project as part of the implementation of the plan. Nonhlanhla Mamba, an educator that acknowledged the initiative of her students says that giving back to the community is one project that filled their hearts joy and the receptors with gratitude. As educators we were very touched by the students initiative. We are confronted with the situation in our neighbourhood every day and our conscience forced us to do something about it. More than 30 families were given food and clothes to take back home.

The initiative brought a smile on the faces of these helpless people. Gladys Katewa, an educator adds that 8 of their students were given hampers to take home, and the format will continue on a monthly basis. Katewa says the idea came as they were dealing with and teaching the children about poverty in their lessons and then the learners decided that they want to do something for the community.
