Fifty new pairs of school shoes for needy learners

MPHELENG – Fifty needy pupils at Mpheleng Primary School in Dennilton outside Groblersdal received new school shoes in preparation for the 2019 academic year.

This thanks to donations received from efforts of Sekhukhune District Municipality Council Chief Whip, Tseke Lepota.

The school shoes’ donation for pupils at the school was part of the Chief Whip “Thuma Mina” campaign launched by President Cyril Ramaphosa to encourage individuals in making efforts that could bring change in other people’s lives.

Mpheleng Primary School Principal, Mmarobo Mothapo, said the donation of the school shoes was a great gesture that reaffirmed leaders’ commitment to better lives of people.

Mothapo said from the 806 pupils at the school, 50 were identified as needy, especially the orphans and those that had no income at all at their homes.

“We would have been happier if the school shoes also came with uniform because some of our pupils are in dire need. We appreciate the effort by the leaders and hope they will frequently visit the schools to see how they can provide help,” added Mothapo.

Frans Nkadimeng, SGB Chairperson, applauded the donation in that it would restore dignity of the pupils who used to come to school without proper shoes.

“The donation will help a long way and we thank our leader for the help they have provided our children,” concluded Nkadimeng.

The Chief Whip said they were really touched by the situation of learners forced to attend school in torn and sometimes without shoes.

“It is heartbreaking to see how difficult it was for other children but we are happy the little we managed to offer will help in some way,” concluded Lepota.
