Drive to ensure adequate furniture at schools

RAKGOADI – Metropolitan Investments and Bana ba Sekhukhune Community Solutions are embarking on a drive to create ideal working environment for teachers at needy rural schools.

According to Jeffrey Walker, Bana ba Sekhukhune Community Solutions Chairperson, the move came after the realization that teachers at most rural schools were working under uncomfortable conditions due to lack of furniture.

Walker said the initiative to donate furniture at rural schools came after a meeting with Metropolitan Investments Groblersdal office manager, Ratema Rathelele in which the need for intervention at rural schools arose.

“During our meeting with Rathelele, poor conditions under which teachers in our rural schools, especially in Rakgoadi area were subjected to were highlighted and we saw a need to intervene and help in whichever way we could. From Rathelele decided to donate some of his office old furniture to several schools.” said Walker.

Walker added that they visited some of the schools and identified Ngwana Manyaku Secondary in Mmotwaneng, Ngwana Mashile Secondary in Ga-Rakgoadi and Matjedi Primary Schools as the ones that needed urgent assistance.

“I believe that this is a situation that needs us as members of our respective communities to start taking initiatives that will help schools,” said Walker.

He added that the conditions at some of these schools were unbearable for teachers who were forced to experience daily.

“Some offices have chairs in store rooms and were not in use. We need more business to heed the call and help better teachers’ conditions at schools,” added Walker.

He further said everyone had a role to play in bettering conditions at rural schools because education was of utmost importance in the life of children and communities.

“We are asking for individuals and companies to donate office material to schools in need and I believe a friendly working space contributes a lot towards performance of teachers and learners. Bana ba Sekhukhune Community Solutions will be responsible for the workforce and present a complete upgrade at staff rooms in our schools,” concluded Walker.
