“The community around our school, most of the parents come from poor socio-economic backgrounds, unemployed and survive on social grant so they are unable to fully participate in funding efforts at the school, so it becomes difficult to attend all the needs of the school,” Mokgatla continued.

Tshatuleng Mokoena, Store Manager at CTM Dobsonville said, “We have been waiting for this day. Today’s occasion as we are handing over the new toilets marks a day of planting for this school. As CTM Dobsonville we always say everyone deserves a beautiful home and it is no exception here, this is a home for our learner’s, it is where they are taught and equipped with tools hence it was paramount that we chip in so our children can have nice and dignified toilets.”

The institutional develop and support officer (IDSO) at the school, Tumi Bereng further urged the community surrounding the school to safeguard the schools in the area citing that they had a role in protecting infrastructure.

“…Education is not just one dimension, and as we always say a child is a societal priority thus I am particularly glad that the councillor and some community members are here, this is not about the district.

“The school belongs to the community,” he said. “It will be of no use when sponsors come and do wonderful initiatives but members of the community come destroy and steal stuff.

“I’m requesting the Cllr, even in the meetings we must make it a point that we address the issue of crime and make sure that our schools don’t become victims.”
