Minority Front leader Mrs Shameen Thakur Rajbansi recently visited Rockford Primary school in Phoenix. Rajbansi, who is member of the Education Portfolio Committee at the Kwa-Zulu Natal Legislature, visited the school as part of the parties social responsibility campaign.
Mrs Rajbansi addressed educators and learners on the importance of a balanced education, talking about the roles that are played by government officials within the department of education and how learners and educators must compliment this as responsible stakeholders of an educational institution.
The MF Leader thereafter surprised the audience, Bengal Tiger style, by making a magnanimous donation toward the need of the school.
She said “I have come to Rockford Primary School to remind you that education is your form of liberation from poverty, inequality and injustice. As can lose wealth and material goods but what we learn will always remain with us. Our late leader Mr A Rajbansi had a lot to do with the establishment and development of our local schools and I intend on carrying out the legacy.”
Thakur-Rajbansi later visited Eastbury Secondary School to distribute hampers to needy learners in celebration of the Hindu festival of Lights, Diwali. The hampers were received by the student body on behalf of the indigent learners. Rajbansi also cautioned learners on use of fireworks and encouraged them to practice safety; with adult supervision.
