Learners at a school in Mowbray got an insight into their futures when Metropolitan hosted a career day at Thandokhulu High School on Tuesday 23 August.

This career day coincided with a book donation for the library as part of a concerted effort to broaden the horizons of South African children.

The company also hosted 30 girls from the school during Cell C’s Take a Girl Child to Work Day in May and is now following up at the same school by donating over 1100 books and providing further career education. There are also plans to expose some of the children at the school to career assessments in order to give them further insight into their career options.

Jimmie de Villiers, principal of Thandokhulu High, says: “The career day was well received by students. It was impressive to see employees investing their time and effort to make the career day possible. These individuals are positive role models who spent the day motivating students to pursue their dreams and inspiring them to reach for the sky despite challenging circumstances.”
