Winnie Mandela School scores big

Baroka FC's coach, Kgoloko Thobejane, and Club CEO, Morgan Mamilla.

Baroka FC donated a football kit to Winnie Mandela Secondary School on April 26.

The football club made a pledge to adopt the school for all their Corporate Social Investment (CSI) projects.

Chief executive officer of the club’s sponsor, Two Mountains Holdings, Mr Chris Chakaipa, said they visited the school to officially adopt the school and donate soccer gear.

“Today we are introducing Winnie Mandela Secondary School’s learners to Baroka FC’s football stars. As a company, we are focused on community because it is the same community that made us.

“We therefore engaged supporters of Baroka FC to identify a school that Baroka FC can adopt in Tembisa.

They voted among themselves and unanimously chose Winnie Mandela Secondary School,” said Chakaipa.

“With regard to our CSI projects we may have our own idea of where we can contribute in the school but we will mainly be guided by the school and the governing body.

They will prioritise on their needs and we will support their priorities”.

Chairperson of the sport committee at the school Mr Daniel Modiba said receiving the soccer kit was inspiring and it was welcomed by the school.

“This has closed the gap of looking down on ourselves as a school team due to not having enough soccer kits.

We are happy to be chosen among all Winnie Mandela Schools.”

One of the players, Refentse Rababalela (13) said he was very excited to see the Baroka FC players.

“I often watch their games and they have good players. I used to adore a player called Skhwama but he left the team. I will always watch them,” said Rababalela.

Winnie Mandela Secondary School’s deputy principal, Mrs Mologadi Mabusela, said their children are motivated by the gesture and implored the sponsors to continue helping the school.
