Much needed stationary delivered to Sinenjongo High School
Generous donations of stationery from hundreds of guests who attended Century City’s annual Carols by Candlelight Service in December was delivered to Sinenjongo High School in Joe Slovo Park down the road from Century City this week.
Sinenjongo serves an extremely impoverished community with a high unemployment rate and a delighted principal, Mrs Khuselwa Nopote, said the stationery would be distributed among the most needy of the learners and also used as incentive prizes for hardworking learners.
Sinenjongo was adopted by Century City’s developer, the Rabie Property Group, as the major beneficiary of its Corporate Social Investment programme five years ago and has since grown from strength to strength improving its matric pass rate from 27% to around 90% last year and also doubling the number of its matric passes.
The Century City Property Owners’ Association, which represents all stakeholders at Century City, has also included Sinenjongo in its community outreach programme with Intaka Island hosting numerous of its learners at Intaka Island, planting trees in the school on Arbor Day and sending field rangers to speak at the school’s annual Careers Day. This is the second consecutive year we have run the Stationary drive as part of the Carols by Candlelight Service which will now become an annual drive.
