Impendulo Primary School got a R15 000 cash injection after claiming honours in the 2020 School Garden Nutrition Programme.

This is a National School Nutrition Programme (NSNP), where schools from provinces compete against one another and the winner is expected to represent each district at the national competition.

On Thursday 25 February, the Makhaza-based school was recognised for its work when Hurschele Carolissen, Cape Metro Circuit Manager, handed the cheque and a certificate over.

Excitement and a sense of pride filled the room as speakers hailed the school’s achievement. The school was praised for the “great work” on the programme. The garden also assists the school in its feeding scheme initiative.

Speakers praised the school management for their handling of the programme. They advised the management to use the money as an investment into the garden.

Carolissen thanked the school for giving hope to the learners. “We don’t know what this garden mean to the children and on their behalf I want to thank the school,” he said. “I want to express my sincere appreciation for the work you do here with the children in the garden.”

Zuziwe Mputa, school principal, expressed gratitude and appreciation. “We are happy with the prize money, but more than that we are excited about impacting these children’s lives,” she said. “With the garden one is able to create work and when these children leave the school they would have inherited a skill.

“We want to ensure that the garden is inspirational to teachers and learners. I want to thank all those that have worked tirelessly and put the school in the limelight.”

Mputa said the garden played a vital role in the school’s feeding scheme as it ensured that children do not go hungry at school and have had a nutritious meal.
