Multotec has contributed a TV, laptop, additional books and the tiling to the new library space at Manyano Primary School in Middleburg. The bigger (and better) library was reopened on Thursday, 9 September 2021.
The school children and a former student, who is now a gospel artist, represented a great musical and dance performances. Garth Jones, on behalf of Multotec, made an encouraging speech and Lindiwe Kabini presented the TV and laptop to the school principal. The grade 1 learners stole the show with their cuteness, confidence and reading skills.
The library was initially opened in June 2019. At the time the school had a small space to accommodate it, but this has been made bigger. Multotec donated books, bookshelves and posters to the first opening of the library.
Manyano library has a committed teacher, Kate Nkadimeng, running it and the support of the librarians from the Steve Tshwete Community Library to manage the books. These librarians can do anything and everything from loading books onto the computer to assessing which books should be retired.
Manyano Primary School is situated 5 kilometres from the Multotec Middleburg branch, in Mhluzi township. The school is under the leadership of Vincent Mnguni, the passionate school principal with the school’s best interest at heart. His vision is to have a multimedia centre at the school.
Multotec is pleased to make this contribution as we believe that education is the best way to secure a promising future for our country.
