MANCOSA (Management College of Southern Africa) a tertiary institution registered with the Botswana Qualifications Authority (BQA), on Friday 13th May 2016 extended a helping hand to St Martin’s Primary School in Papatlo by giving them a 4 in 1 coloured printer/copier.
This was a follow up to their visit to Papatlo Village in August 2015, where they gave the school 10 computers with in- built wireless internet cards and 10 desks.
MANCOSA yearns to build a long working relationship with the Ministry of Education Skills and Development together with other stakeholders so as to have a lasting impact in the education system.
This is why when Dr Ntseane, chair of MAMARABOPA Development Trust, brought a proposal to assist St Martin’s Primary, MANCOSA saw it as a perfect opportunity to partner with the Ministry as part of the Adopt a School initiative.
In her address principal of MANCOSA Ms Patricia Tabengwa reiterated the value of the relationship that the college has developed with St. Martin Primary School through the MAMARABOPA Development Trust, and that, though MANCOSA still has limited resources, they are looking forward to helping again.
She also said that “I wish we had gone to deliver the photocopier at Papatlo because of the warm hospitability that we experienced from the community when we went to give them the computers and desks”.
The headmistress of St Martin Primary School, Mrs Nthibo applauded the assistance that they have been getting from MANCOSA.
She said that the printer came at the right time when they needed it the most.
She pointed out that the computers that were given to them have been put to proper use and that the pupils love them.
In closing Mrs Nthibo said that she hopes that in future some of the students of St. Martin Primary School would come and study at MANCOSA.
