They attended the launch of construction of new classrooms at Ethekwini Primary School in Durban on 11 October, Good Things Guy reports.

The project will also upgrade the school's ablution facilities, Briefly.co.za learned. It will include a nutrition programme and a menstrual hygiene course for girls.

Nelson Mandela Foundation has partnered with the Cotton On Foundation, a nonprofit organisation based in Australia, to implement the project.

Ethekwini Primary School currently has 1,100 learners. About 150 are in each classroom. Therefore, learners have to complete their primary education in other schools because of lack of space.
