Chair, as part of the annual Joe Slovo Right to Learn campaign, the SA Communist Party in the Western Cape donated 380 pairs of new shoes to children at four West Coast primary schools on Monday, 16 February 2015. The shoes were donated to pupils from Grade 1 to Grade 4. Children who benefited from the donation were from Carl Schreve (Mor) Primary, Stawelklip (Mor) Primary, Masiphathisane Primary and Chatsworth AME Primary.
The ANC commends its ally the SACP for this venture, given that a number of children are walking barefoot to school in this province run by those who care nothing for the poor and the underprivileged. This annual campaign is of significance in light of the recent ongoing treatment of working-class learners in the Western Cape. Three-hundred-and-eighty pairs of school shoes from different shops were given to four schools in Piketberg, which is very good.
