Blinkpan Primary School
Education is something we as well as our parent group, Sturrock and Robson, care deeply about. One of the schools that we have worked with is Blinkpan Primary in Mpumalanga Province, the same area as our South African mill.
Blinkpan Primary plays a vital role in uplifting the local community as a state primary school which educates some of the most disadvantaged children in the area. As the school experienced severe funding pressures, some of the basic elements such as security and hygiene facilities had begun to deteriorate.
We wanted to help the school to provide a safe environment for their teachers to teach and pupils to learn, and therefore assisted them with various improvements around the school, such as conducting vital roof repairs, putting up new fencing, and refurbishing the school’s hygiene facilities.
The children now have a safe place to receive the education which will be so important to building solid futures for themselves and their families.
