INSIDE: MUSEUM DONATES LIBRARY EQUIPMENT-
AN OUTREACH programme to a local school by Amathole Museum education officers last year contributed to a positive change for the betterment of pupils.
Last week saw a variety of activities taking place at Andile Ntsepe Lower/Higher Primary School, in eRhamnyiba, which originated from the original visit.
A library was opened with donated books and steel cabinets, chairs, as well as sport equipment was handed over by the museum, Steve Biko Centre, and departments of education and sport and recreation respectively.
Among the visitors in attendance were Colonel Nomvuyo Mrwebi of the South African Police Service (SAPS), educational district officer Zamikhaya Ronoti, Amathole Museum senior librarian George Monahdy and museum director Fred Kigozi.
An elated Mzimkulu Fani, the school’s principal, said the school has converted one of its classrooms into a library and was quick to commend the three museum officials for the success of the project.
“Gcina Vani, Nonkululeko Bam, and Lolonga Tali were instrumental in making this project a phenomenal success.
“They saw a need for a library which can improve the literacy of all pupils. What they have done today, along with all partners, is appreciated by the school, parents and community at large.”
