KZN school campaign bearing good fruits

Back to school campaign, school uniform handover, King Cetshwayo District Municipality

THE KZN Government has committed itself to ensuring that young people are armed academically so as to face all the missiles that life will be throwing at them.

This sentiment was expressed by Mbongeni Mathe, from the Youth Chief Directorate in the Office of the Premier during his visit to Nongweleza High School last week.

Mathe, accompanied by officials from King Cetshwayo District Municipality said his visit was as a result of a Back to School Campaign held during the term opening, where needy learners were identified.

‘We are here to donate 20 school uniforms to learners from disadvantaged backgrounds to boost their morale and restore their confidence.

‘We are also here to declare war against crime and other social ills.

‘We want to see you succeeding in life by becoming teachers, doctors and lawyers, but this will remain a pipe dream if you indulge in criminal activities.

‘We also want to thank the District Municipality for partnering with us,’ he said
King Cetshwayo District Deputy Mayor Cllr Alice Mthembu said her municipality cared about the future of young people.

‘It is our wish to have a generation of educated youth, as this will help in reducing the number of people who depend on government’s social grants including RDP houses.

‘We want to have a generation of young professionals who will have decent jobs and be able to look after themselves, not people who will survive on handouts.’

Mthembu said she hoped the donation would motivate learners to improve the school’s 2016 matric results of 54%.
