1st February 2022 - Watsonia Primary School is an educational institution with many trying circumstances and challenges. Many of their learners are from impoverished areas where the basics are absent. They are a no-fee school and therefor also rely on voluntary financial donations of the parents. The majority of the parents and guardians are battling to even make a minimum monetary contribution hence also relying on contributions from various companies or individuals.
ACA Threads were pleased and honoured to be part of this project and donated R35,000,00 on 23 April 2021. After that, a second donation of R5,000,00 was donated to Watsonia Primary school on 25 June 2021.
The school needed a second duplicating machine as the first has reached its end of service after almost ten years. These duplicators are used at schools daily and are an integral part of the education of our learners. The Riso SF5030 Risograph, is one of the latest generation duplicators and was bought at a cost of R 34 995,00.
