In an effort to continuously implement its CSR Programme, HRDC donated a heavy duty photocopier and a 4-in-1 printer to Shoshong Senior Secondary School on the 12th September 2019. Giving the welcome remarks during the donation ceremony, Mr. Peter Moalosi, School Head, said the photocopier and the printer came at an opportune time as they were preparing for exams and as such they will conveniently reproduce the revision material for the learners. ‘‘Sometimes we had to drive from Shoshong to Mookane just to make copies because the surrounding schools would not be having the copiers. Therefore, it is a privilege and honour to receive such a donation from HRDC,’’ reiterated Mr. Moalosi.

When handing over the copier and the printer, Mr. Meshack Tafa, HRDC Chief Operations Officer – stated that the Council endeavours to positively impact the learning environment for learners across the country. Nevertheless, Mr. Tafa advised, ‘‘The school management must be focused and persistent as they impart knowledge to the learners more so that the world has now embraced the invent of the fourth industrial revolution. The Fourth (4th) Industrial Revolution (4IR) dictates that people have to be techno savvy in order to be globally competitive, therefore, information technology should be inculcated at a young age.’’

Mr. Tafa made an undertaking to return to the school at a convenient time to engage and motivate teachers and supporting staff on how they can work as a team in executing their duties and responsibilities. The handing over ceremony was graced by representatives from the School Parents Teachers Association (PTA).
