New Library Officially Opens at Mullersrus P.S.

The Mullersrus Primary School officially opened its library and resource centre on Monday, 21 November 2022, with a special ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by members of the community, the school governing body, and representatives from the Western Cape Education Department.

The excitement was tangible, especially amongst the youth scholars, who had front-row seats to the transformation of the school classroom into this new comfortable space for reading and learning.

The project was led by the Light from Africa (LFAF) team who worked closely with the school to transform the space, collect and sort books, and source funding. We are grateful to have several of our partners present to witness the momentous occasion.

A highlight for the day was when the main sponsors, George and Sue Manter from the USA, cut the ribbon to officially open the library.

The Mullersrus Primary School choir celebrated in song and a local writer, Audrey Jantjies, inspired the children with a story and a motivational message. Guest speakers from local libraries and the WCED delivered messages of support tothe school for this wonderful initiative.

“As the writer, Frederick Douglas said: ‘Once you learn to read, you will be forever free!’ I encourage members of the public to support this Library appeal by sponsoring a book. Together we can free our children’s minds by assisting the school to fill up the remaining empty shelves in the library,” LFAF Director, Almarie Pelser reflected. “On behalf of the LFAF Board and Management team, I would like to commend and thank our team and our donors for their selfless efforts, and for making this possible.”
