20 students at the Mafikeng Hotel School get the best news ever!
The Mafikeng Hotel School in the North West Province provides diploma courses in Hotel Management, Catering, Professional Cookery as well as Food and Beverage Management. Many of the students from the area, who attend the school, are reliant on bursasies and sponsorships, as they are from poor and impoverished backgrounds. Many have been very successful after completing their courses, which has given them the opportunity to get good employment to on their part support their families.
My name is Melanie Coetzee and I am the Public Relations Consultant of The Carousel Casino.
We have been contacted by the Rector of the Mafikeng Hotel School, Joe Akwa and he has asked us if we could assist with bursaries to underprivileged students. 20 Underprivileged students have been identified and The Carousel in a joint venture with Sun City will be sponsoring these 20 students with bursaries to the value of approximately R540 000 in total.
Sun City will be donating 10 bursaries and The Carousel will be donating 10 bursaries. Each is valued at R27 000 and in total will be R540 000.
These students haven’t been notified yet and we would like to know if we can join forces with Good Morning Angels. We were thinking of getting all the students in a room with the Rector, Joe Akwa and you could contact him to give the good news.
