SABC Does It Again

On 6 May 2016 the SABC yet again helped Harmony Park Combined School with learning material.

Harmony Park Combined School’s infrastructure was built and headed by the premier of Mpumalanga. After the school’s infrastructure had been completed the principal of the school then took hands with the department of education. The school, however, received little funding from the Department of Education and was not able to meet the expected requirements. Needing help, Mr M.J. Nyandeni then contacted the SABC Foundation, who gladly accepted and where more than willing to help. On 16 March 2016, Excelsior News covered a story where the SABC Foundation handed over much needed equipment.

However, Mr Kathlebo Tsolo (Project manager for the SABC Foundation) noticed that the grade R class of Harmony Park Combined School was also under equipped. The SABC Foundation then decided to take on the task of equipping the grade R class with what was needed. Mr M.J. Nyandeni (principal) also mentioned that a grade R teacher had to be outsourced, and she is currently being paid by funds contributed by the parents of the grade R learners. The SABC Foundation then took time to go out and visit private schools’ grade R classes to be able to see what equipment was needed to give the learners the ultimate learning experience. On 6 May 2016, Mr Katlebo Tsolo revisited the school to hand over brand new equipment for the grade R class.

The SABC Foundation proudly sponsored learning material for language and maths, as well as recreational material for sports/music and arts/crafts. Also included were much needed stationery and equipment for the teacher to use, to enable her to do her job more easily. The learners where all so happy to receive the new equipment, that there where smiles all around. The Harmony Park School’s staff and learners thank the SABC Foundation yet again for their undying devotion towards helping the school. Now the school can again look towards building a brighter future for their learners.
