Sibaya Casino and Entertainment Kingdom unveiled a new state-of-the-art Science Laboratory at Zamimfundo Primary School in Ntuzuma, valued at R354, 000, recently.
It is envisaged that this will contribute to an improvement in pupils’ performance in Science, Technology, and Engineering at school level so that more pupils can pursue careers requiring these subjects at tertiary level, which is essential to the economic growth of our country in future years.
“We sincerely hope that this fantastic laboratory will help to improve the performance of pupils in Science related subjects at Zamimfundo. This will enable them to go on to university and ultimately begin careers in engineering and scientific fields which will contribute to a vibrant economy,” said Pumla Masuku, human resources business partner of Sibaya Casino and Entertainment Kingdom.
Zamimfundo principal, Zanele Ndlovu, added, “We are delighted to receive this magnificent Science laboratory which will be a major boost to our teaching programme.”
