Letshego Primary desperately required a resource center where learners could augment the skills and concepts received. The education office in Sedibeng, District D8, recommended the school as a worthy recipient of a modern Imperial library. This commendation was based on their year on year growth in the Annual National Assessments (ANAs). The ANAs spotlighted the learners’ performance in Maths and English, and indirectly into the standard of teaching.
Unfortunately, the school was already over-crowded and did not have a room large enough to convert into a suitable library resource center. The Trustees agreed to additional funding for capital works, and the defunct computer center was taken apart, extended and renovated into a beautiful large library.
Imperial’s service providers, as was customary, spruced up the site with books, teaching aids, IT equipment, games and teaching resources. In April 2016, the school was the proud owner of a state-of-the-art library resource center.
The library has become a popular destination for teachers and learners alike. The huge outlay has definitely provided the ’return on investment’ that the trustees expect from its partner schools.
