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.
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!

Harmony Park “Scientists” go all the Way
After taking part in the countrywide Mondi Astro Quizz Science competition, two learners from the Harmony Park Combined School took it a little further.
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.
This honour was bestowed on Thembeka Nkosi who took part as member of the Mpumalanga team, on 30 November. The results for the interprovincial Environmental competition on Climate Change are currently being awaited, but science teacher Ms Nkosinomsa Ntuli and other staff, as well as fellow learners of the Harmony Park Combined School would like to congratulate these two learners for taking it so far! You did the school, town and region proud! Well done! Those results are now awaited in anticipation …
