Macassar learners receive free shoes

1 February 2018

A total of 56 joyful learners from False Bay Primary School in Macassar received donations of shoes today (1 February 2018). This was made possible by a couple from the local area, supported by the Kasi Riders Biking Club and various road safety agencies, including the Road Safety Management directorate of the Department of Transport and Public Works. Some of the learners’ shoes were worn out, and others did not have shoes suitable for school. 

According to principal Vernon Hendricks, the school is delighted to be the beneficiary of the Back to School campaign – a community and social development programme supported by various road safety agencies in the Western Cape. “This is a good initiative to bring smiles to faces, and it shows that the generous contributions of people do make a difference. We thank all the role-players,” said Hendricks.

Mark Jansen, Director: Road Safety Management, emphasised the importance of inter-sectoral partnerships to uplift communities. “This speaks directly to the core values of the Back to School campaign, of giving back, integrating resources, and teaching people about social issues, including road safety.”
