Charity with Spring Day

AMANDELBULT – Usually Spring day is celebrated in a joyous festive mood because of the coming to life of nature, of we as human beings are part. Last Friday the students at Amandelbult came together to celebrate life, and (may I add) the follies of youth. But this year there was a big difference. They also considered the less privileged who may never have heard of Spring day happenings. For 2009 the students selected the THABANG PLACE OF SAFETY for destitute and suffering individuals. Under the guidance and driving force of Lindiwe Manzini and Onka Tyobeka they decided to collect money and clothes amongst the students, their parents, friends and other supportive members of the local society. The Student Representative Council also became involved via their President, Mr. Phemelo Khotlang.
During a short ceremony at the College the collected items and money were handed over as a token of the student’s empathy and support to Thabang Place of Safety.
The lecturers at Amandelbult FET College salute this exceptional initiative of their students and are positive that this will become an annual effort.
