Pupils receive school shoes and sanitary towels

KEEROM– Sekhukhune District Municipality (SDM)  Council Speaker, Maria Manamela, donated school shoes and sanitary towels to needy learners at Metsana Ngwana Primary School at Keerom Village within the Ephraim Mogale Local Municipality recently.

The donation is part of the Speaker’s office effort to change the status quo and challenge the narrative through informing, inspiring and empowering the youth within the district with possible opportunities for an educated society.

The intervention is believed will ultimately become triumphant over the national crisis of inequality, poverty and unemployment.

It is aimed at motivating the learners to do better in their studies, to expose learners to a wide range of array regarding school exit opportunities, to help the needy learners and boost their confidence as well as safeguarding the dignity of the female child.

The donations comprised 50 pairs of school shoes and 200 packets of sanitary towels for girl learners at the school.

Former Ephraim Mogale Local Municipality Speaker, Bushi Modisha, who is also former learner at Metsana Ngwana Primary School, identified the school as needy and approached the Sekhukhune District Municipality Council Speaker’s office for help.

Speaker Manamela said they knew that some of the families were child-headed and there was a need to reach out for those.

Manamela further told the learners to encourage their parents to ensure that they take part in the national roll-out of the vaccine program.

Metsana Ngwana Primary School Governing Body (SGB) expressed gratitude for all those who ensured that the donation handover at the school was a success.

Limpopo Department of Education’s Moutse West Circuit representative, PP Sebothoma, said the donated shoes symbolised the future of the learners at Metsana Ngwana in various careers they would choose at a later stage.

Sebothoma concluded that the shoes would boost the confidence of the learners to perform to their best ability academically as they would all be looking alike.
