MOTSWEDING FM ANGELS HARD AT WORK

Posted by radio On January - 19 - 2013

Motsweding FM Angels – a CSI movement made up of the radio station’s staff members, launched its 2013 Back2School programme on Friday 11th. The Angels, together with educators, learners and their parents spent the day at Onkgopotse-Tiro Comprehensive School in Tsetse [Mahikeng] giving the school a face lift by cleaning, painting and refurbishing all 23 classes and general surroundings.

The school which is named after South Africa’s student activist, Abram Onkgopotse Tiro, under the leadership of Principal Edwin Kgonothi, achieved I00% pass for both Grade II and 12 in the 2012 academic year.

The Angels also presented the learners with much needed essentials, which include school socks, sanitary towels, toothpaste, soap, etc.

“Education is a very important weapon in fighting poverty and a much valued brick in build-ing a better future for South Africa and Africa.” said Motsweding FM Station Manager, Sibongile Mtyali, during the donation hand-over. She pledged the station’s continuous sup-port to the learners and urged them to stay in school despite the challenges they face every day.

Mr Edwin Kgonothi thanked Motsweding FM Angels and indicated that the gesture will not be forgotten. This he said in the presence of officials from the North West Province Department of Education, Ngaka Modiri Molema Regional Office, who showed up after hearing the call to action on Motsweding FM. The delegation was led by Central Circuit Manager-Mahikeng, Mr Pat Mmolawa who ex-pressed gratitude and appreciation to Motsweding FM Angels for their continued support, selflessness and commitment to community development and nation building.

The Angels will continue to spread love on Monday 22nd January 2013 at Batswana High School, a school which like Motsweding FM, celebrated 50 years in 2012. The program for Batswana High School will however be different in that the focus will only be on emotional preparedness of the leaners to face the 2013 academic year.
