Harmony Park Combined School cleans up

On Thursday, 18 July, the management, staff and learners of Harmony Park Combined School decided to clean up their own premises for Mandela-day.

This initiative was put into action by the governing body of the school, after seeing that the grounds were full of garbage left there by the learners.

Clean up after yourself, your mother does not work here

Making people clean up their own mess is sure to teach them a valuable lesson about responsibility. The more people litter, the more it becomes a bad habit. If they had disposed of their garbage in the right way from the start, they would have been able to enjoy Mandela-day doing something more fun.

Teach your children to be respectful towards the environment!

Thembeka Nkosi and Nontokoza Motha entered the Environmental competition on Climate Change, a competition organised by Nonhlanla Zwane from Enviro, which took place at the Amsterdam Evironmental Centre, on 21 October 2015. The girls made it through the first rounds and won when representing their school. They also represented the town and the Gert Sibande District. Only one of them could be part of the Mpumalanga team, however, when the different provinces took part in the clash at the Elukwatini Environment Centre.
