SITE #4: Touwsranten Primary School
The school is located in Touwsranten, Hoekwil – in the George District. The school has 432 learners (Grade 1 to Grade 7). This quaint little school is well maintained on the limited funds provided by the Dpt. of Education and is a public primary school. The school is a Section 21 school meaning it is allocated finances by the department and is responsible for ordering stationery, textbooks, paying water and lights accounts and undertaking their own maintenance of the school.
There is a small food kitchen that feeds all the learners 3 meals per day which is supported by a small scale vegetable garden (currently not sufficient to supply the food kitchen with all of its requirements). The majority of the learners attending do not have a pre-packed lunch as they reside in a low-income bracket community in which the school is situated. The school grounds are visibly absent of trees.
The staff and learners of Touwsranten Primary School & The Precious Tree Project Team Say THANK YOU WMO!
