The donation of pots and other kitchen utensils to the Galeshewe-based Boitumelo Special School by the private company Kim Crush was welcomed by the staff and learners on Friday (18/08).

According to the deputy principal of the school, Mandla Mazizi, the donated items will be used for the National School Nutrition programme.

The donation comes as an ­intervention by the Kagisho Police Station who selected some schools that fall under its jurisdiction as beneficiaries.

Other schools on the list are the primary schools of Tshiamo, Moleabangwe, Tshwarelela and Isago.

According to Emmy Vermeulen of Kim Crush, the initiative is part of the company’s corporate social investment programme, which its Bloemfontein branch has always participated in.

Vermeulen said they will continue to liaise with the identified schools to see where they can assist in the future.

Thanking the Kagisho Police Station, Mazizi spoke highly of their relationship with the station regarding crime prevention and the programmes the police run at the school.

He singled out the fitness programme that has become close to the heart of the whole school.

Mazizi further encouraged the community at large to take ownership of the school in terms of safety.

“If the community can partner with us in being the eyes and ears, criminal activities and break-ins at the school will definitely be minimal,” he emphasised.

On the day of the handover, police members from Kagisho also interacted with the learners and staff, including the handing out of toys to a few learners.
