Volunteers get dirty at school
Volunteers, greater Hoedpsruit based- businesses and staff from the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve and Children's Eco Training joined hands with teachers, pupils and parents of Mawuvana Primary School on a clean-up drive at the school.
All contributed to the success of 'Do-it'Day' by planting, painting, putting in windows, restoring and fixing desks, replacing desk tops and surprising the school with new shelves in the storeroom. "This hard work and incredible changes gave the school new hope and a sense of belonging and pride," says Zani Kunz of Children's Eco Training.
"We would like to thank all of you, the volunteers and our sponsors, who assisted in making this an awesome experience," says Zani.
School principal S Ndlovu said he is delighted to see their planning come into fruition. "The participation of teachers and parents are much appreciated," he said.
