Archbiship Emeritus Desmond Tutu hands over desk to needy Cape Town school
It was gorgeous sunny day in Cape Town on the 21st July-I think the Archbishop must have put in a word to the big man to arrange this for us-considering all the rain they’ve had Smiling faces were everywhere as the Archbishop arrived at Lwazi Public Primary School in Gugulethu to honour the contribution Huletts has made to education in SA through their sponsorship of over 100 000 Lapdesks to previously disadvantaged children over the past 5 years!
For Zethu Sithole-Brand Manager of Huletts the day was an awesome one that will never be forgotten-her smile beamed across Gugulethu as she was greeted by the Archbishop and was envied by many an onlooker.
The day consisted of 1000 Lapdesks being handed over to the pupils of Lwazi Public Primary School, and incredibly motivating speeches by both Zethu and the Archbishop encouraging the children to focus on their education and that no dreams were too big, as the Archbishop said “so you want to be the president-why not?”, “you want to be an Archbishop-why not? “reach for the stars” he said “never think your dreams are too big-focus on them and they can become a reality”.
The children had prepared an awesome traditional dance which all the guests enjoyed, especially with the Archbishop adding his enthusiasm and joining into the fun! The 21st July will be in will forever be engraved in the minds of everyone present that day-thank you Huletts and thank you
“Arch” for always touching our hearts!
