Intshayelelo Primary was nominated by three teachers at the school to receive support from the Hollywood Foundation’s Back to School campaign this year. The campaign has already touched the lives of many learners across the country. The campaign aims to ensure that learners are given the necessary school tools, such as stationery items and uniforms, to carry them into the new academic year.
The school was established in 1994, and teachers and learners were happy and excited to hear the news that they will be receiving much-needed support. The learners at the school also enjoy sports and recreational activities, apart from classroom lessons. The school has opened up about the many challenges that it faces on a daily basis, such as high absenteeism rates due to children not owning proper school attire, including school shoes. On 23 February 2022, the Team from the Western Cape was proud to visit the school in Khayelitsha, to present the learners with brand-new boxes of school shoes.
Mr Mbobo, the Principal of Intshayelelo Primary, said that the new school shoes will help to build the self-esteem and confidence of the learners. He added, “Thank you so much to the Hollywood Foundation. We appreciate it, and may you continue to support the school.”
