SED INITIATIVE – CONLOG DONATES A SCIENCE LABORATORY
Conlog committed to a R406 000.00 donation to Malefo Secondary School state-of-the-art science lab project . ”A good education is founded on the premise that the environment be conducive to the practice of learning. It should be able to make available to learners the infrastructure, facilities and resources necessary for learning. Sadly, in South Africa the legacy of our past does not always render this basic fundamental a reality. All too often we find that our country’s schools – especially those serving the historically disadvantaged or today’s lower income groups – do not measure-up. Many fall short in terms of both infrastructure and the provision of the tools necessary to give effect to efficient teaching and effective learning. We, at Conlog hope that our contribution is a small step to making an improvement to the scholars of Malefo Secondary” added Sibusiso Skosana.
Pauline Mokhutle, acting chief director in the North West department of education in Bojanala district said “We hope that this science laboratory will help to improve the performance of learners in Science subjects at our local schools. This will enable them to go on to university and ultimately begin careers in engineering and scientific fields which will contribute to a vibrant economy.” It is clear that by providing essential equipment in classrooms we can boost academic performance at schools. Corporate South Africa has a critical role to play in this process and we are proud that Conlog has chosen Malefo Secondary School to be a part of this initiative”.
According to Mr Louis Taylor, Director of Partnerships in education, said the DBE welcomes this initiative by Conlog and will ensure that the Science Laboratory donated by Conlog will be optimized by Malefo Secondary.
