Go back and make a difference

CALL TO CONTRIBUTE:  Minister Dr Trevor Manuel made a plea for active citizenship in support of quality education.

“You can make a difference.”  This was the message from CPUT’s Chancellor and Minister in the Presidency: National Planning, Dr Trevor Manuel when he visited Mitchell’s Plain recently.

HELPING HAND: The Sociotech Kujali unit have developed cellphone technology to improve the lives of township dwellers.

In a small room on the CPUT Roeland Street campus a group of post graduates are making a big difference.

GIVING A HAND: St Michaels Primary School learners leave their handprints on a wall painted by CPUT students.

A service learning project completed by second year Architecture students will continue to give joy to learners at a remote primary school for years to come. Using mostly recycled and donated material the playground at St Michaels Primary School in Grabouw has had a complete facelift.

EYE ON THE PRIZE: Gairo Adamson holds the first clue her group found in the bakery section of Vangate Mall’s Pick n Pay.

Spending your 94thbirthday doing the rugby jive and racing around a mall is not high on most pensioners list of things to do.

However thanks to enterprising CPUT Sports Management students this is exactly what Olive Johansen did last week.
