R800 000 for Lerekhureng

STEENBOKPAN — Eskom has invested about R800 000 to refurbish Lerekhureng Combined School near the Medupi project in the Limpopo province. This after the school was vandalised in December last year with the corrugated roof being ripped off, computers and television sets stolen, which resulted in school books and school archives being destroyed by rains.
When schools opened for the 2016 academic year, learners were left with no secure premises to carry out their schooling activities and were relocated to the nearby Leseding village at Steenbokpan, where they were accommodated for learning purposes in community halls, an old school hostel and a house.
Eskom has since refurbished the school by partitioning one hall, which was segmented into four classrooms, and also remodelling and refurbishing students’ hostel blocks, which will serve as six classrooms. In total, the project has made available 10 classrooms that provide a conducive environment for normal schooling activities.
Through such initiatives, Eskom ensures that it ploughs back by responding to immediate needs, where possible, to better the lives of the communities it operates in including Lephalale and its surrounding communities. For the plus 300 learners of Lerekhureng, this project has provided a learning environment that is healthier and more encouraging for their schooling syllabus.
