Tlhabane/ Rustenburg – A bigger hall at President Mangope Technical High School will be constructed thanks to a group of former students who decided to chip in with financial assistance.

During a reunion held in December 2019, about 60 former students of the Tlhabane-based school pledged to contribute towards the costs of building the hall as well as some of the costs related to other smaller projects. Since the beginning of this year, the former learners have been fulfilling that promise.

“We are contributing money each month as our way of helping the school to meet its needs,” said Victoria Molotsi, a student at the school between 1999 and 2001. “Besides the hall, the school also requires new printers, blinds, air conditioner facilities as well as paving. Our gesture is our way of saying thank you to the school that played a very important role in shaping our lives when we were young.”

President Mangope Technical High School principal Mrs Deborah Mathe expressed joy as she explained plans to revitalise the educational institution. “We are planning to pave the surface at the main gates, so we really appreciate the assistance of the former students.”

The former students have also undertaken to replace the old blinds and are in possession of quotations to purchase new ones.

  1. appreciate and salute these men and women of valour for expressing a willingness to plough back to the school that nurtured, moulded and groomed them into the remarkable individuals and leaders they are today,” Mathe concluded.
  1. its establishment, the school has achieved a pass rate of over 90% and attributes this achievement to a dedicated school governing body (SGB), a committed team of teachers as well hardworking and disciplined learners.
