MOTHERWELL school Elufefeni Primary will keep the flag of the Eastern Cape Province flying high during the National Schools Environment Competition at Badgewood in Boksburg from July 10 to 13.

Elufefeni Primary School Environment Club (Enviro Club) initially won the provincial competition in the theme “Wash Your Hands” in the poetry category.

According to Elufefeni Primary principal, Amanda Ntsumpa, the journey to national stage started at regional level where her school came out tops under the mentorship of Liziwe Kate.

Enviro Club members recited poems to demonstrate how to wash one’s hands without wasting water.

“Our Enviro Club, that comprises of members Ayava Hola and Anezwa Mangqasana who are both in Grade 6, are trained by Kate. The provincial eliminations took place in Bhisho on June 22 and 23. Our Enviro Club stole the show because they were the most creative school.

“Kate has a passion for what she is doing and she is very committed and dedicated. Our drama team came second, but it is only winners that will participate in the national competition.

“Last year Kate and our Enviro Club won the national schools environment competition. I want to thank Kate because she is one of our assets.”

Kate said that the teamwork at her school was one of the main reasons for their success. “Our staff, SGB and the parents really supported us. I am very proud of them.

“We are more than prepared because we are working very hard. Our Enviro Club is focused and ready for action.”

Principal Ntsumpa thanked the learners, staff, parents, SGB and Ward Councillor Mncedisi Mbuqu for rendering their support to their Enviro Club.

“I want to give my special thanks to our learner transporters for their financial support. They provided funds for the school to hire transport for supporters to accompany our Enviro Club to Boksburg. They have made a huge difference because the majority of our learners hail from the poor area of Motherwell NU 29,” concluded Ntsumpa.
