NWU-Puk helps to keep children warm
This winter will be more bearable for about one hundred little faces of the Ntsamaiseng Pre-primary School in Ikageng, thanks to one of the community projects of the North-West University’s Potchefstroom Campus.
This campus’ Student Rag Community Service (SRCS) together with Su-Maré Moolman, a fourth-year Foundation Phase education student, started a project to provide blankets to children in the community. Moolman works closely with the project leader of Ntsamaiseng Pre-primary School, Johanette Vermaak of the Minjonet Ladies’ residence on campus.
“The main objective of this project is to empower the pre-primary school, the learners and the teachers so that quality teaching and learning can take place. Although the main focus falls on educational stimulation, there is a huge need for physical improvements such as proper toilet facilities and the provision of basic needs of these children,” says Vermaak.
Braam Fourie of Prisma Training Solutions in Potchefstroom offered to donate one hundred blankets to this project. The donation was accepted with gratitude and the handing over of these blankets was done recently at the pre-primary school. NWU-Puk SRCS would like to thank the staff of Prisma Training Solutions for the difference they make in the lives of each of these little children.
