2017-04-05 06:02

CONGRATULATIONS to Ms Bongiwe Fortunate Dlamini, a Grade R teacher at Latha Primary School in Umvoti, on being a national finalist in the annual national teaching awards sponsored by the Department of Basic Education. She deals with children from underprivileged homes every day and assists in obtaining food and clothing donations for them.

Underlying her dedicated commitment is her belief that it is special and interesting to teach young pupils because “that is where you learn to apply different skills and methods, the results of which make you proud”.

Bongiwe said that being selected as a finalist made her "feel like a queen".
