Following a request from the principal of the Gravelotte primary school, the NPC undertook to renovate and furnish a hall at the Gravelotte Primary school for the establishment of a Grade RR (5-6 year olds) class. This included installing toilets, plumbing, renewing the flooring, lights, windows, refurbishing wooden doors and painting. Labour was supplied by the Selati staff under the direction of Lourette and Ruhan who have done a great job. Over the years the school which borders the Selati Game Reserve has received various forms of assistance from Selati. There are some historic ties between Selati and the school in that both Piet Warren and Henry Dunn attended.
The renovation has been completed and there are currently 21 Grade R learners enrolled at the school this year. To assist the school further, we would like to appeal to members and friends of Selati to assist with donations of books and toys suitable for children aged 5-6. Any furnishings such as bookshelves, a teacher’s desk and play mats etc would also be greatly appreciated.
If you can help with these donations, the school and the NPC would be very grateful if you could drop off materials at Selati head office or if you would to like to assist with a cash donation of any amount, the NPC account details are:
