ABOUT THIS PROJECT
Sa Home Loans donation turns Maths and Science vision into reality for Ekuthuleni primary School in Kwa Mashu
S.A.Home Loans recent partnership with the New Africa Education Foundation and Edutrade has turned a vision into reality at Ekuthuleni primary in Kwa Mashu. The school in the North of Durban was the proud recipients of the latest CAPS compliant Edutrade Natural Science and Mathematics kits which were donated by S.A.Home Loans. It is envisaged that this will indeed contribute to an improvement in the learner’s performance in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics at school level so that more learners can pursue careers requiring these subjects at tertiary level which is essential to the economic growth of our country in future years.
Edutrade, the Educational Division of Lasec SA has for years partnered with the Department of Education to supply schools with quality educational products which fulfil the requirements of the current curriculum. Regular product updates are done to maintain this, currently all Edutrade Kits and Modules are aligned to our latest CAPS curriculum. The CSI Division for Edutrade has an objective to secure partners within the private sector who share the vision to uplift resources in targeted schools as CSI projects ensuring learning platforms are created to promote better results in these fields of study at school level. The Willowton Group is proud to have partnered with Edutrade due to this synergy in our CSI goals.
The project was coordinated and managed by Ahmed Motala of the New Africa Education Foundation, an NPO that SA Home Loans has partnered with to roll out the project to schools.
The Principal Mr S. Khalala, at the official handover of the Maths and Science kits had this to say “On behalf of the Governing Body, staff and learners of Ekuthuleni Primary School, we would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank S.A.Home Loans and New Africa Education Foundation for your sponsorship of Maths and Science resources to our school. We are absolutely delighted as some of our learners have seen live Science experiments for the very first time in their lives and we are most grateful to yourselves for this opportunity.”
