IN celebration of Mandela Day and getting involved in the community, Wild Coast Sun partnered with Spur and Mzamba Youth Centre and staff spent the day painting a school in Sirasheni.

The staff spent eight hours helping at the school and doing giveaways at Chief Dinizulu School.

The school started in 2011 as a pre-school with only one classroom, but as the need for a school in the area arose, parents took responsibility to see that dream materialise and knocked at possible doors for help, including at Wild Coast Sun.

The school has now grown up to Grade 4 as a satellite of Mdatya School.

“The pupils will never forget this semester’s first day at school as they had nothing, but smiles on their faces, singing Mandela uliqhawe (hero).

“Painting for them wasn’t really the exciting part as they enjoyed burgers from Spur Wild Coast Sun branch and juice provided by Bambanani Restaurant,” said Mahlubi Thole, public relations and co-ordinator for Wild Coast Sun.
