Mayors Schools Functionality Engagement Breakfast
Education remains one of the priorities for Maphumulo Local Municipality. On Tuesday 30 January 2018, Her Worship, Mayor Zibuyisile Khuzwayo-Dlamini and Deputy Mayor hosted a Schools Functionality Engagement Breakfast at Maphumulo town hall.
This program was aimed on building a mutual relationship between the municipality and the local schools, identify and act on challenges our schools face throughout the year as part of the Back 2 school campaign.
Schools face challenges everyday which gives a negative impact on the performance of the students and schools in general. “It would be very unfair of us to sit and wait for schools to produce their final results at the end of the year, without knowing and engaging on the challenges they face during the course of the year. It is a fact that our schools face drug problems, teenage pregnancy, shortage of resources, lack of parental support, learners walking long distances to school etc. These challenges touch us all and we should all work together hand in hand with all government departments and schools in tackling these issues and creating a prosperous learning environment for our learners. Our children are the future and through education they will build a better nation for us all, so let us give them our full support and cooperation they need”. Said the Mayor
The mayor donated new school uniforms to learner who are less fortunate, Scientific calculators and study materials to schools.
Maphumulo Local Municipality committed to youth education towards economic freedom.
