On 29.11.22, the University donated some stationery to Boitumelo Primary School which was adopted by the University in 2016. Due to the aftermath of Covid 19, the University has not been able to offer assistance for some time and the school has been struggling with very little stationery left for day to day running of the school. Hence the Resident Assistants driven initiative under the Department of Academic and Student Affairs (DASS) came at the right time. The following items were handed over;
Toners, photocopy papers, Mathematical instruments sets, Pencils, Erasers, Pens, Rulers, Masks, Toilet paper, Clothes (includes shoes).
The school Headteacher, welcomed the team from BUAN and was delighted to have visitor in the school after a while, since the Covid 19 break. The Director of BUAN Academic and Student Affairs, gave a keynote address and encouraged pupils to always dream big so that they see themselves as graduates at some point. She indicated that the items donated will help pupils focus as they will not worry about the lack of stationery in the event that they would have forgotten theirs at home or do not have any at all, their teachers will now be in a position to give them, since they now have enough. The PTA chairperson in his closing remarks, appreciated the efforts made by the Residents Assistants and indicated that it will really help the school since they are in shortage and in need of stationary. He also encouraged the learners to always aim high and be motivated by the graduate students. He concluded by saying that, the donations will be fairly distributed to benefit all pupils of Boitumelo Primary School.
The Residents’ Assistants are graduate students; Ms Chandapiwa Moses (PhD Animal Science), Mr Wananao Kaisara (PhD Crop Science), Ms Bonolo Setshogela (MSc Crop Science) and Mr Tshephaone Tladi (MSc Agricultural Engineering). The Residents Assistants greatly appreciate all those who brought forth their pledges (BUAN Staff and Students) which included; stationery, clothes and monetary pledges which made it possible for us to purchase some of the items the school indicated they needed. Thank you so much for you kind generosity!!! Le kamoso!!
