GIVING: Nomthandazo Zweni (black dress), headmistress at Holy Cross Primary, welcomes donations from the Unit for Applied Law lecturers Ulrich MacKay, Ishrat Hoosain and Servious Hungwe.

In a show of neighbourly support, the Unit for Applied Law donated cash, toys and stationery to Holy Cross Primary School.

The school, which is situated in Zonnebloem, was recently dealt a major blow when a fire razed parts of the buildings.

Lecturers Ishrat Hoosain, Servious Hungwe and Ulrich MacKay said it took them two weeks to raise the donations. “It’s an ongoing project,” said Hoosain.

Nomthandazo Zweni, headmistress at Holy Cross Primary, said she was overwhelmed by the community’s response to the news of the fire.

“I didn’t expect all the donations from the God-sent people,” said Zweni. “We thank the Lord for the support we received, especially from the District Six community.”

She added that almost all of the school’s 518 pupils have been in attendance since the school caught alight.

Milton Emmett, the school’s maintenance foreman, said the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
