Sasol donated three mobile classrooms to Kuhlekwethu Day Care Centre in Kinross, Ext 25.
The mobile classes were fully furnished with educational toys and other learning materials.
Ms Duduzile Nkosi from the Department of Education could not overemphasized the importance of education in the foundation phase.
“A house with no good foundation is guaranteed to collapse.
“It is important to enroll to pre-schools and acknowledge the importance of grade R schooling or foundation phase.
“The department has partnered with various stakeholders to help foundation phase teachers get the knowledge they need to assist children in their early years of learning,” Ms Nkosi elaborated.
She further mentioned that it is very important to make sure that children at foundation phase are exposed to the basics of learning in order to avoid illiteracy problems in future.
Ms Nkosi said we live in an age where a grade 8 pupil cannot even read or be able to think strategically but with the correct education at foundation phase such errs can be avoided and we can be certain to have excelling pupils in future.
Ms Mashudu Ndou from Sasol Social investment said, “Sasol believes in supporting the
community. “We believe in education and supporting prosperious projects, and the upliftment of education”.
Sasol said they have supported 6 schools this fiscal year of 2017 with mobile classrooms, not they have money, but because they value the community, people and the spirit of ubuntu.
In her closure, she thanked the support from all stakeholders and sent forth her regards to Ms Rose Nkabinde the ward councilor for her diligent support and her love for the community and its development.
