Northern Eyethu - - NEWS - Tam­lyn Jolly

YOUTH Day in Khula Vil­lage near St Lu­cia was cel­e­brated by more than 150 com­mu­nity mem­bers by help­ing to clean up Silethukhukanya High School.

The event was co­or­di­nated by Pro­por­tional Rep­re­sen­ta­tion coun­cil­lors An­na­cle­tah Mabika and Xolani Mkhwanazi.

School Gov­ern­ing Body mem­bers Ray Langa and Mr Mthembu joined in the clean-up, along with the school’s Prin­ci­pal, Si­mon Madela.

The clean-up yielded al­most 700 lol­lipop sticks and many refuse bags of rub­bish, which was fol­lowed by a talk to raise aware­ness about child abuse.

Lo­cal com­pa­nies Ad­van­tage Tours, Ele­phant Coast Guest House, EuroZulu Sa­faris, St Lu­cia Sa­faris, Ants and Mus­tard, Her­itage Tours, Shore­line, and Zulu Sun Sa­faris do­nated food and drinks which were en­joyed af­ter­wards.

‘We are grate­ful to have such car­ing peo­ple in our area, and we wish ev­ery par­ent would en­cour­age the learn­ers to help keep their school clean on a daily ba­sis,’ said Mabika.
