SCHOOL AND THE COMMUNITY STATUS

The school is Built at a Rural Village and at a Historically Disadvantaged and marginalised area in terms of resources and facilities including infrastructure.

There is a higher Poverty status/level that is prevailing within our population due to Low employment rate.

The working class in this communities are Educators ;Nurses ;Police Men and women .This trend has developed a scenario and trend in which our young generation believes that those are the only careers essential for human survival .This was mostly fuelled by many colleges for teacher training in the Former Lebowa Bantustan Government.

We are aiming at providing an intervention that would make Mathematics; Physical sciences and commercial subjects as our key focus for development to remove and eradicate that past believe that they are the most difficult subjects and with a view of opening doors for their new areas of career path they may follow.

The School Nutrition Programme

Our School is privileged to be a part of the National Department of Education’s “Nutrition Programme (A programme which ensures that 9 000 000 learners receive at least 1 if not in many cases the only meal they will have for the day). The programme is funded by the National Department of Education; the funds are utilised by each Provincial Department of Education for all identified needy schools.

Our school qualifies to be included in the ”Nutritional Programme” as it falls into the category of being in the Quintile 1- 3 range in terms of the level of “Poverty” experienced by the surrounding community. Falling into this category our school is also a non-fee paying school, receiving an annual financial allocation from the National Department of Education in order to assist the school in funding the budget requirements (Funds are therefore also limited – school fundraising can take place, however, due to the high poverty and unemployment levels of the community such events can only generate a very limited amount of the needed funds to provide for all the resource needs of our school).

At our school the “Nutrition Programme” which is highly functional, is managed by the professional staff but practically carried out by a group of “Food Handlers” (Generally women from the surrounding community - Some being volunteers and some receiving a small stipend). The food handlers are responsible for the daily preparation and distribution of the supplied food as well as ensuring that the storage and preparation of the food is done hygienically (We also have a limited supply of running water which does affect the effective implementation of hygiene protocols).

We have limited storage space for the food stock, and the storage space for the food is not ideal and therefore not as hygienic as we would like it to be (Limiting the shelf life of the food as well).

As our “Kitchen Facilities are rather rudimentary, we are therefore reduced to cooking the daily meal over “Wood Burning Fires” in large metal “Cooking Pots”. While not only taking long to prepare the surrounding environment is stripped of wood and air pollution is exacerbated by the smoke from the daily cooking fires – Gas although an option is also expensive and can’t always be covered by the finances in our limited budget.

Despite the limitations and facilities the food handlers manage to ensure that each child receives at least one wholesome, nutritional meal per day. For many of our learners this is probably the only meal that they will receive for the day.

As a school community, we have also started a “Food Garden” to supplement the supply of food from the Education Department. Again the “Food Garden” is maintained and cared for by volunteers from the community, learners and staff. Excess vegetables and fruit are shared with the community.

All in all, the “Nutrition programme” is highly functional and works like clockwork. It ensures that the children/learners are better prepared for the classroom experience in terms of concentration and energy levels in general and also enhances both mental and physical capabilities in particular with an overall improvement in each learner’s psychological well being.
