Swaneng Primary School will be celebrating 50 years of existence next month.
The English medium private school which serves the village of Serowe and the surrounding communities was established in 1963 by pioneer educationalist Patrick Van Rensburg.
In a build up to the golden jubilee celebrations, the school has undertaken several fund raising activities, to ensure the day is a success.
One of the organizers of the celebrations Zendanemako Kwaedza said that besides the school’s primary mandate to provide quality education Swaneng Primary School also wants to reach out to the needy.
“On the day we will be celebrating our golden jubilee, we will also be handing over a two and a half house to a less privileged family in the village.
This project complements our existing scheme of subsidized school fees for all children from SOS and also providing them with free meals,”Kwaedza noted.
Swaneng Primary school is also proud of the 100% pass record in the Primary School Leaving Examinations(PSLE).
“It’s a record we have achieved and managed to maintain since the inception of the school.
In 2012 the school had 28 standard seven students and 27 of them attained grade A overall.
One pupil got grade B. Last year standard seven candidates increased to 53.
Forty four of them got grade A and the rest got grade B,” he said.
Swaneng Primary school current enrolment stands at 480 pupils.
