Lavender Hill school receives R1m windfall for library and hall

Levana, an impoverished primary school in Lavender Hill, today received a gift of R1m to build a library and school hall. In a ceremony held in the school playground, headmaster Andre Lamprecht was handed a cheque by The Albert Wessels Trust that will dramatically impact the entire community.

The library will be shared with the community and will be the first in Lavender Hill. The Western Cape Government Fiber Optic Program includes these disadvantaged schools which means the library will also receive a high speed 100MB line.
