In addition to these activities on the day, the following was also officially handed over to the school:

  • Twelve new whiteboards were installed in selected classrooms.

RDC donates 13 PCs to Child Academy Programmes in Tembisa

The Child Academy Programmes school in Tembisa is one such initiative. It is a community owned school that has grown from a crèche in 1992 to a primary school covering grades 1 through 7 in 2008. With 610 learners and 32 staff members, it is a well-run and loved part of the community.

RDC’s contribution has permitted the school to extend the level of education provided to learners by incorporating a level of computer literacy in their curriculum. Three of the computers will be used to support the running of the school and assist educators with their lesson preparations and research.

Mayebuye Spectacles Day

Good vision is very important for a child who is learning and growing. Visual problems should therefore be corrected early so that these will not hinder their learning ability.

Learners at RDC’s adopted school, Mayebuye Primary in Rabie Ridge, underwent eyesight testing sponsored by the company. Those learners identified with visual problems were also provided with corrective glasses at the company’s expense.

Winter Blanket Drive

With a cold winter forecast for 2011, RDC staff rallied behind the social investment committee and helped raise blankets for all 215 of the orphaned and vulnerable learners at Mayebuye Primary. The blankets were delivered in early May, just in time for the first cold spell.

Mayebuye Primary School

RDC has adopted the Mayebuye Primary School in Rabie Ridge Midrand through the Adopt-a-School Foundation (www.adoptaschool.co.za)

This is a school that services the surrounding informal settlement and has a high number of Aids orphans on their register. There are plans afoot to provide the school with a fully equipped computer room. This will ensure that learners receive a jumpstart at acquiring the necessary skills to survive in today’s technology-driven world.

The more immediate needs of the school that have already been met are: uniforms for the netball and soccer teams, an extra bed and linen for the school sickbay and additional reading material for the school’s library.
