Two local schools received a shot in the arm from the University of Zululand’s Community Engagement Project. The Faculty of Education on Tuesday donated books to Qhakaza and Dlangezwa high schools, as part of the outreach project.
Resource Centre staff Una Langeni said: “Books contain a lot of information which can be used and be useful to other people rather than throwing them away. On that note we would appreciate distributing them to schools in need especially those schools where our students do practice teaching,” Both the Dlangezwa and Qhakaza Schools are situated at the KwaDlangezwa area.
Explaining the rationale behind them starting with local schools, Langeni said: “Charity begins at home”. She concluded by saying the programme will also be extended to other schools in a bid to donate books to as many schools as possible.
