LEPHALALE – On Thursday 22 September Matimba Power Station involved various schools in an air quality awareness campaign.
The day kicked off with a lovely breakfast after which Tshifhiwa Matamela welcomed and introduced the guests; Ntobeko Mthembu acted as master of ceremony.
Debates and drama performances on air pollution by the learners from various schools showed that the learners had done their research. This was illustrated with passion and heaps of humour. The learners did exceptionally well while the management of Eskom’s Matimba Power Station smiled as they watched even though the finger was sometimes pointed at them as the “guilty party”.
Judges Chantel Janse van Rensburg, Tumisho Moabelo and Shardrack Netshichangani had to put their heads together to eventually decide on the winners in the two categories. The winners in the debate as well as in the drama performances were the students from Mabalane Seleka School under the competent leadership of Miss Wanita Beukes. The best performing school overall was Thabang Secondary which gave coach R Ntwampe reason to smile from ear to ear. Participating schools included Hoërskool Ellisras, Mabalane Seleka, Sethula Secondary, Mazwe High School, Thabang Secondary and Batlhalerwa Secondary.
Matimba Finance Manager, Mpo Sibanda, thanked all those involved after which a wonderful lunch was enjoyed by all. Each learner also received a handy back pack together with a calculator and dictionary with compliments from Eskom.
Matimba Power Station manager, Rhulani Mathebula, honoured the campaign with his presence.
