MEMBERS of the Community Policing Forum at Greytown SAPS took positive and extremely helpful action for Mpalaza Primary School in Ngome (Ward 14). The 24 pupils up to Grade 7 are crammed into the only two classrooms in an old building.

Spokesperson for the police/CPF said the team had erected a fence around the school grounds which they had also leveled - so the youngsters now were more secure and had space to play.

The classrooms were painted, two concrete tables built in the playground so that the pupils now have somewhere to sit and eat their lunches They can now play safely in the fenced level grounds with a soccer ball, which was also donated. And most special of all were the 24 new school uniforms plus shoes handed out to the very appreciative youngsters. These actions were all backed by Umvoti AIDS Centre personnel who also donated 8 of the 24 uniforms.

CPF secretary Miss P.M Baxter expressed the team's appreciation to all the stakeholders who took part in this very successful and rewarding programme. They included: Mr Mkahitini (Department Community Safety), Mrs Mkhwanaza (Department Education), Lieutenant Colonel Mchunu, Ward 14 Councillor Ndlovu, Miss Sithole and Mr Zondi (Umvoti AIDS Centre), (CPF treasurer), Mr Gcabashe (CPF chairperson) W/O Mnyandu; the school teachers and parents and all the pupils.
