Children will do upgrades on the school including adding colourfully painted canvasses to their classrooms, re-organising their library and planting a useful food garden with vegetables and fruit trees.

Jana van Wyk, a senior marketing consultant at BSG, said they will be joined by Orielia Egambaram, Miss Earth Air runner-up and Marianna Christophi, Miss Earth SA ambassador to assist in the tree planting ceremony.

Van Wyk said the idea is to empower the youngsters with knowledgeable skills and further connect with them to impart value onto their lives.

She said BSG has organised a number of Do-it Days where they visit Leap campuses, host workshops and get stuck in where they need help.

“Making a difference is at the very heart of our purpose as BSG. We believe in being a proactive force for positive change,” said Van Wyk.

“We are committed to making a significant and sustainable difference in communities through education. With this in mind, one of BSG socio-economic development focuses is our support of Leap Science and Maths Schools.

“We chose Leap because it takes a holistic approach to education, focusing on maths, science and English skills.”

Also, she said they have selected LEAP because they have been able to visibly see the impact they have made over the years.

“Maths and science feature heavily in the ICT sector and as an organisation in this sector, it is in BSG’s best interests to support initiatives that foster growth in these critical skills.”

Although residents will not participate in the day’s activities, however, Van Wyk said they are invited to assist the school with donations citing vegetables and lemon trees for the food garden.
