Inkwenkwezi Secondary School Inkwenkwezi Recycle Swop Shop

On Monday, 9 September 2013, Beyond Education launched a Recycle Swop Shop at Inkwenkwezi Secondary School, in Dunoon.

Beyond Education is a non-profit organisation that has been running a Recycle Swop Shop in the Dunoon community for the past two years. This year, the Swop Shop needed a new venue and Pauline de Klerk, PfP to Principal of Inkwenkwezi Secondary School, Tembi Kutu, suggested that the school premises would be ideal.  

“There are many educational benefits and opportunities that this project brings to the school”, says Maria van Der Westhuizen, who works for Beyond Education, “It also promotes an ethos of working towards something.”

The aim of the introductory assembly was to enthuse and educate the learners and educators about the concept of the Swop Shop. This was partially done by means of a fun drama that was presented by three drama students. The different waste streams were also explained.

Members of the community collect recyclable items such as tins and cans that are lying around in the streets and these are taken in bags to the Swop Shop. For every bag brought in, a token is received. These tokens can be redeemed for clothes, food, toiletries and school essentials.

The benefits of this initiative are thus multi-fold. Learners learn about the importance of recycling, being responsible and the value of hard work. A sense of pride is instilled in the community and community members have the opportunity to see how valuable even the smallest contribution can be.
