Eastern Cape MEC for Education Mr Mandla Makupula donates school uniform to Thembalesizwe Senior Secondary School in Ilitha township near King William’s town
20 Jan 2012
The dire need to see Eastern Cape Province education focusing on the learner has prompted MEC Mandla Makupula to donate school uniform to Thembalesizwe Senior Secondary School in Ilitha Township near King William’s Town on 20 January 2012 at 11h00.
The donation follows a visit to the school last year by MEC Makupula who could not believe the conditions of these learners. Subsequent to that, the MEC organized the school uniform for all the school learners as per their need.
This happens despite the school having received all the necessary stationery for teaching and learning on time this year. This gesture to the school is to make these learners feel looked after despite their family background. T
he uniforms to be donated include the following:
- 57 Blazers for both boys and girls
- 51 school shirts for boys and girls
- 51 school jerseys
- 45 pairs of school shoes
- 32 ties for both boys and girls
- 32 grey trousers for boys and
- 11 skirts for girls.
The practical stance by the MEC to donate school uniform is meant to inspire these learners to know that despite their background focused energies can help them focus on learning during school hours. The media is therefore invited to be part of this event and a briefing session has been scheduled after it for the media.
