A former learner at Nolungile Primary School has come back to to his alma mater to give as a principled token nd of ploughing back to the community.

Shaun Snaigo delivered 13 computers to Nolungile Primary last Thursday, as parts of a Corporate Social Investmen project for Old Mutual.

The school had been lacking the gadgets with only 10 PCs working, but now they will have more than 20 at their disposal after the donation of three laptops and 10 desktops.

According to the school principal the act of kindness is worth emulating.

Peggy Manga said: “It is very commendable that as a former learner he knew the struggles faced by the school and he thus managed to convince his company to come and make a donation here.

He understands that the children that come to this school are from disadvantaged background and he too was once one of them.”

She said that they school was struggling with the limited number of PCs they had and that their donation has come at the right time.

“It has been really tough since we have a few of them and couldn’t accommodate all the learners. Now there will be enough to help them learn.

I’m also very happy to learn that he will try to rally other former learners to come and teach our learners how to use the PCs,” she said.

She urged other former learners to come on board and lend a hand.

The schools governing body also welcomed the donation sighting that the earlier children learn to operate PCs the better their chances of success.

“We have to change this phenomenon of learners only learning to use a PC when they are in matric of tertiary institutions.

By having this kinds of donations at our school our children will get to learn for a young age and give them an advantage to better their lives,” said SGBs James Hlohla.
