“The new changes made to our classrooms will motivate and inspire young learners to attend classes regularly and boost their confidence.”

These words were uttered on Monday by Principal Noxolo Tongo, of Luzoko Primary School in Gugulethu, during the handing over of Grade R classes after they were renovated by the NewKidz on the Block organisation.

About two classes were painted and installed with new shelves for children to keep their bags. The organisation also donated paint for parents to paint the jungle gym for learners.

Tongo said they are grateful with the support they received from the organisation.

“We feel honoured to be one of the schools assisted by the NewKidz on the Block. We promise we will keep the classes clean,” said Tongo.

Lynne Haefele from NewKidz on the Block said it was a privilege to work with the school.

“We started on the last week of March and finished on the 20 April 2018. We also put new cupboard in the kitchen to make it look clean. We also bought a brand new fridge to keep food for the children,” she said, adding that they renovated the classrooms to make them more exciting for children.

She described NewKidz on the Block as a nonprofit organisation, working in partnership with retail giant Shoprite.

Gugulethu Development Forum chairperson Samora Nompunga thanked the organisation for the great initiative and said he wished that they do the same for other schools in the area.

School Governing Body chairperson Dumile Vokwana described the project as the beginning of many other projects to come.

“I like the fact that parents were also involved in the project,n ably assisting in painting the jungle gym ... We feel great as learners are also excited,” he said.
