‘Mama Walton’ gets intercom system - for first time

2016-04-21 06:00

One of the oldest schools on the Western side of Uitenhage, “Mama Walton”, has realised a long outstanding dream, with the installation of an intercom communication system.

“Within this year, this system will be installed. All made possible with the generous donation of R60 000 from the John Walton Alumni Association,” said Phillip Joseph, John Walton Deputy Principal and Treasurer of the Alumni.

Annually these former learners have fund-raising activities in order to raise funds for bursaries for deserving “Mama” students who are pursuing careers at universities or colleges. They also support the school with capital projects like the intercom system.

On Friday, April 29th, the school and Alumni will have joint functions to celebrate another year of historic achievements.

“It will be the opening of the newly acquired National Lottery sponsored gymnasium and also the opening of the school’s second CAT computer room. This will be over and above the first computer room, which with the assistance of the Alumni, was sponsored and opened by Stenden University,” said Joseph.

A “Hoenderbraai” will also be held on Friday, 29th with chicken meals selling at R40. At 18:00 the Alumni will have their Annual General Meeting at the school hall.

  • On Saturday, April 30th the Alumni will host their annual gala evening at the Uitenhage Indoor Centre. Tickets are available from ex-learners at R180 per person. The gala evening will commence at 18:30.
