AFTER starting their school adoption programme, the Port of Richards Bay has helped two local high schools achieve greater academic excellence by simply providing them with the educational tools necessary.
Siphosethu Secondary School in rural Richards Bay and Khombindlela High School in Empangeni were identified by Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA), assisted by the Department of Education, as part of TNPA’s school adoption programme.
