THE Retlamelang School for Children with Disabilities in Galeshewe continues to teach its learners the important lesson of giving when you receive.

On Friday (22/07), when the school honoured the Department of Education’s request to contribute to Mandela Day, the school was blessed by the presence of officials of the office of the Commission for Gender Equality who brought the school a big printer and photocopy machine.

The school was chosen as the beneficiary of the machine during the commission’s surplus of assets period.

According to Kelebogile Pilane of the commission, their office received a new printer and they decided to donate the items, which are still in working condition, to underprivileged schools.

The school, in turn, presented two boxes filled with groceries to two disadvantaged families who they had identified in Galeshewe.

“As a sign that we will always remember Nelson Mandela for all the sacrifices he made for democracy, we donated these groceries to the Malerato and the Tsanke family because we are fortunate to have been remembered,” said the school principal, Peter Selebogo.

He said the school had requested the learners and the staff members to donate at least one grocery item each.

Expessing his appreciation to the office of the Commission for Gender Equality, Selebogo added that the school had always been in need of a bigger printer.

“Although we do have a printer, there are times when we have break-downs and need an extra one as a back-up.”
