- The school’s principal is excited for the children to benefit from the new learning spaces
The kasi community of Motherwell is feeling extremely grateful to a charity called the Mark Headbush Foundation, after their help in building 3 new classrooms for the township’s local school, Elundini Full Service Primary.
The Daily Sun reported that Nelson Mandela Bay mayor, Mongameli Bobani, unveiled the classrooms in a joyful ceremony this week.
Elundini Full Service Primary’s principal, Ntsiki Bono, explained that the classrooms would help tremendously as the classes are often overcrowded.
“We have 885 pupils at the school, built in 1990. We admit pupils with learning and physical disabilities,” Bono explained.
Due to this, the school also needs to take into account the needs of these learners.
“The overcrowded classrooms made it difficult for all the children to learn. The only solution was adding more classrooms,” Bono continued.
Briefly.co.za discovered that the principal approached the Mark Headbush Foundation, who was able to help get the school what they need.
“I pleaded with the foundation to assist us and it agreed. This will definitely add value to the school.”
Businessman and head of the foundation, Mark Headbush, said:
“It’s critical to the development of kids to enable them to make a positive impact in our country.”
