"This is amazing! Hope its the first of many more. I love the wirework and the wire and tin creations that is done in SA. When our grown up children were in primary school there was a small wire work project on the curriculum. I remember thinking then - that it was much harder to do than what I thought it would be for the children and this really has potential to become 'something' in future.
"At that stage wire figurines and little windmills etc was not sold on the roadside as it has been for sometime now and my oh my - some of these creations are done by artists - people who have a really good eye!"

Chris Maluleke added:

"This is what South Africa needs at a time like this."

Meanwhile, previously reported a Grade 10 learner opened up about building his dream car.

Hailing from Ga-Rammutla Village in Limpopo, Mokgadi lacked the financial resources, but his determination and hard work proved key. Daily Sun reported that the youngster takes pride in his achievement and refused to focus on his impoverished background.

Mokgadi said:

“I kept my focus and never looked at my disadvantaged background or gave up on my dreams.”

Mokgadi credits time spent at a local scrapyard for providing the base for him to learn about vehicle design and function. He spent approximately R5 000 on the parts for the car.
