The Grade 1 parents of Karibib Private School (KPS) officially handed over a refurbished classroom to the school.
The handing over ceremony took place on Monday, 3 June 2019, with George Bothsiwe, the managing director (MD) of QKR Navachab Gold Mine, also in attendance. A thank you gift was handed over to Tomi Ngutonua for having done the bulk of the work without claiming a single cent.
The group of parents raised funds and toiled for a considerable amount of time to ensure the execution of the project.
The classroom furniture was refurbished, its walls painted with bright colours, the cement floor covered with ceramic tiles and a brand-new jigsaw puzzle mat was laid.
KPS congratulated and extended a heartfelt thanks to the parents under the instrumental leadership of honourable Anchen Konjore, the local magistrate in Karibib.
The commitment from the parents that the sick bay and the playground would be renovated as well, was a message well appreciated by principal Vincent Hockey on behalf of the school.
In addition, 20 computers were handed over to the senior IT centre. A Karibib fun fair was held last year in order to raise funds for the purchase of the computers and it was a huge success.
Special thanks go to board of trustees, school board, the KPS Parents’ Association, our principal, Mr Vincent Hockey, and the school staff members.
