The Deputy Minister implored the learners to do their part to ensure the school premises are kept clean and habitable. He called on learners to be disciplined and ambitious in order to be successful in life. He lamented the disturbing reports he had received about some learners at the school indulging in drugs. He said such behaviour will in all likelihood result in the learners engaging in criminality and serving time behind bars. Mr Makwetla made a commitment that the department will send parolees to the school to help renovate the dilapidated infrastructure. Sizakele Manonga from Clear Choice
Builders echoed Deputy Minister Makwetla’s sentiments when she inspired learners to work hard to achieve their dreams. “I want to encourage you to dream big and know that unless you put in efforts to achieve your dreams, you will not achieve them,” Manonga said. She said the sanitary towels donation will contribute to ensuring that girl learners do not miss school during their menstrual cycles. She concluded by expressing hope that the gesture will ensure that female learners do not fall behind with their school work.
School Principal Jabulani Dlamini thanked Deputy Minister Makwetla for his endeavour to uphold the dignity of female learners at the school, most of whom come from poor families without the means to buy sanitary pads. LMN acting Deputy Regional Commissioner Kenneth Mthombeni and Area Commissioner of Bethal Management Area Sunnyboy Mndawe also attended the event.
