Shadow MEC visits schools

CONCERNED: DA Shadow MEC for Education Khume Ramulifho and ward 57 DA Clr Faeeza Chame want nothing but the best for learners in schools.

LUSITO School and and Rewlatch Primary School were graced with a visit from DA Shadow MEC for Education Khume Ramulifho and ward 57 Clr Faeeza Chame on Wednesday, February 1.

The pair said they visited these schools as part of their scheduled visits to various needy schools in the South.

They wish to ascertain these schools’ challenges and difficulties, so as to represent them in council and legislature.

They will also ensure that the office of the MEC of Education, Panyaza Lesufi, is aware of the daily challenges experienced by learners and staff.

Schools such as Lusito, which do not receive financial support from the Department of Education, will get regular visits from Ramulifho and Chame. The duo promises to push for them to receive support from other areas, because they do good work in the community.

Lusito School particularly impressed Ramulifho and Chame. The school offers education to many challenged adults and children who come from homes as far as Soweto. However, it depends only on donations and fundraising initiatives. It renders an important service, which allows parents to go to work knowing that their children are well cared for, skilled and educated throughout their day.

“It really takes a special person to have enough time and dedication to care for those people in society who have special needs. I am very impressed by Lusito School because the school is kept very clean and neat. We would be happy if all our schooling institutions could look like this, because learning would be made much easier,” said Ramulifho. He also made time to note down all the school’s challenges and needs.

Chame said: “Rewlatch Primary also had a lot of challenges and limitations, such as their power supply. The connection needs work to be brought to perfection. We will engage City Power to intervene. The mayor of the City of Johannesburg has promised to assist us in assisting these schools.”
