Sponsor A School West Rand School & Bosasa Group
Bosasa proudly allocates thousands of rands per annum to upholding the maintenance of West Rand School. Most of the school's children have parents who lost their jobs when the mine shut down its operations. Furthermore, the school educates youths from surrounding areas, such as Munsieville, who take the bus in every morning. West Rand Consolidated Primary provides a brighter future for students whose parents can't afford to pay school fees.
Bosasa inherited responsibility for the school's well-being from our previous holding company. CEO Gavin Watson immediately took charge and Principle Xakaza, along with many of the school's employees, found in him someone who could speak their native tongue -- isiXhosa -- and understood their concerns and requirements. Since taking over as the school's main administrator, Principle Xakaza has raised the number of learners from 40 to 160. Phindile Xakaza was herself a learner at the school in 1959 and returned to teach there in 1980. She became principal in 1990.
