Thorburn assists disadvantaged “farm school”

The Tirelong Secondary School near Kroondal in the Rustenburg area is located in a farming area and in some circles is referred to as a “farm school”.  The school provides education to 390 scholars with 42 x Grade 12 scholars.  The conditions are far from favourable and the learners noticably less privileged than the traditional school learners – access to basic educational and support such as internet facilities is almost non-existing but the dedication from the principal and teachers is a great help. In 2015, they had a 76.6% matric exam pass rate.

 

In an effort to improve the Grade 12 educational level, the school provides full-time accommodation to the Grade 12’s,  additional late afternoon classes (and even on Saturday mornings), as well as providing meals. Pupils are from very disadvantaged families and communities.  Sleeping and mess facilities are very basic and there is a lack of basic healthy foods, as there are no funds to support the Grade 12 project.  It was mentioned that a meal of pap and cabbage for dinner is not uncommon.  They do “what they can with what they have” and even grow their own vegetables.

 

Going forward, Thorburn Security Solutions will support the school with basic needs and food. Thorburn has also made a once-of payment of R20 000 in support of the sleeping and mess facilities, and going forward R1 000 will be donated each month towards food supplies for the next 12 months.  In addition to the above, will be the donation of a laptop computer to the top Grade 12 scholar for 2016.   Daisy Khoza (Thorburn Manager in Rustenburg), Joyce Mabe (Anglo Platinum) and Victor Mahlaola (Principle) accompanied MD Dolf Scheepers on a tour of the facility
