Department does Green Good Deed for East London school

Jojo tanks, waste bins and gardening tools were gratefully received by Ebenezer Majombozi High School on Thursday August 11 , donated by the department of forestry, fisheries & the environment.

During the handover at the school in Gompo, East London, the department representatives who were present said the donation would help the school maintain and develop its vegetable garden.

The school’s vegetable garden is used to feed its pupils, as well as the community.

The handover was preceded by several presentations including on Solid Waste and Environmental Management Focal Areas to educate pupils about proper waste management within their community and school.

Majombozi’s principal, Loyiso Victor Pakade welcomed the donations, saying they would assist the school in maintaining the Green Good Deeds programme objectives, which are aimed at protecting and taking care of the country’s environment .

“The Jojo tanks will be for our water storage so that in times when the municipal water is not available due to maintenance, the water that we have stored will then be used for functional needs of our school . For example, the learners toilets or ablution facilities, we use them for our garden,” Pakade said.

“We have planted 100 trees here that were also donated by DFFE to us. And we also have a garden that we use to actually feed our learners and the community,” the principal said.
