School gets a Fresh Coat
Randburg Clinic School in Ferndale, is a haven for children between the ages of seven & 12 years who suffer from severe behavioural difficulties. The clinic received help from local business who painted and renovated it on 7 June.
Werner Botha, founding director of Midek Paint Direct, offered to paint the school and gave advice and paint supplies.
“I was excited about training the existing maintenance team at the school to correctly prepare, treat and paint the school alongside our professional team. It felt good to pass on our knowledge. Our company will always be on hand to give advice,” said Botha.
Claus Kuhl, director at Midek Paint Direct said, “It is an honour to adopt the clinic school and supply them with free labour and materials. We see this as a long-term opportunity”.
Parent Chrishenda van Huyssteen said the school community will always welcome any help from the public as there is often a challenge to maintain the school. “People assume that we are well off because of the area the school is located in, but the problem is most of the pupils come from disadvantaged places,” added Huyssteen.
Ronald Bachelor, Randburg Clinic School principal said the main purpose of initiatives such as these is to get the community to know about the school and be involved and help with the school activities. “We are very grateful to Midek Paint Direct and Fireworks designs for their support,” expressed Bachelor.
