Vodacom Foundation helps learners to understand the value of environment!

Courtesy of Vodacom Foundation, learners took their eyes off the books for a while as they rolled their sleeves and concentrated on getting their hands dirty for a worthy cause by planting trees.

WED is mostly celebrated globally on this specific day for positive environmental action.

Vodacom Foundation spokesperson Andile April, says they consider environment important because as a company, they deal with products that are environmentally conscious and interacting with learners, is the right channel in imparting information with. 

Halfway House Primary was assisted by Vodacom Volunteers who got down to their knees and muddied themselves in an effort to conscientious pupils and neighbours what this day aims to achieve.

Grade 3, Kyle Govender (8) who boasted that he planted four trees says according to him, the day means preserving the environment and protecting the trees in both his school and where he stays.

“Everyday I make sure I water my tree and flowers,” as he pinched his nose continuously.

By the time we left school premise, close to 20 trees were planted.

“The tree planting initiative will hopefully demonstrate the role learners can play in ensuring that their environment is nurtured and cared for,” says April.

Kamohelo Matloa (10) grade 5, who considered herself the ‘oldest’ also sent a message that she hopes the world and everyone would consider environment important and look after it as it has great benefits to communities we live in.
