Please adopt my school - Principal

SELEBI-PHIKWE: Selebi-Phikwe Primary School head teacher Marriam Motshegwa has appealed to private companies and parastatals to espouse the school under the newly introduced 'Adopt-A-School' initiative.

Speaking during the school's seventh anniversary victory celebrations on Saturday, Motshegwa said since the initiative started no company has approached the school. "I am making this appeal because the assistance we receive from council alone is insufficient to address the needs of the school to make it a conducive learning environment for pupils."  She applauded committed parents who have been supportive of their children.

She however said this success was not achieved without challenges because some pupils had to be pushed to study harder. The school achieved a 94 percent pass rate last year, with 50 of its 128 PSLE candidates attaining A pass, 35 Bs, 35 Cs and 8Ds last year. From the 97 percent pass rate the previous year, the school was awarded P30, 000 by the Ministry of Education and Skills Development in recognition of its efforts. The money was used for the purchase of two computers and a printer.
