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.”
