Brand new Boitumelo library starts love of reading and learning

Pupils from the poor Boitumelo Secondary School, next to Sebokeng, have been given access to a world of books following the handing over of a new library by the MEC Bopape- Molebatsi recently. 

Thapelo Marumo (14) a grade 10 pupil at Boitumelo Secondary School “said I am happy for the new library. It means no more travelling long distances to do my school project and for my study purposes”.

“This is an opportunity of a life time”

Tears of joy fell down VanderbijilPark when twenty students received bursaries from Emfuleni Local Municipality to further their studies. The pupils can now look forward to a brighter future as they would study at their respective fields at different institutions.

The handover of the bursaries championed by Executive Mayor Greta Hlongwane accompanied by Members of Mayoral Committee (MMCs) Khulu Malindi, Sello Pitso, Mabandla Ronyuza and Khethiwe Ntombela Hlongwane put a smile to the beneficiary. The bursary will cover tuition fees, textbooks until the end of their studies.
