On 1 August the Courses and Distance Education section of the Legal Education and Development (LEAD) division of the Law Society of South Africa donated 15 school uniforms to children at Boschkop Primary Farm School in Pretoria.

The donation was part of its social responsibility programme. The Courses and Distance Education manager, Nomsa Sethosa, told De Rebus that the aim of the donation was to put a smile on the children’s faces and to assist them. She added that going forward, her department would donate two school uniforms per child per year and that it would also buy them birthday and Christmas gifts.

When asked how this particular school was chosen, Ms Sethosa said that she visited the school last year and was touched that all the children in a particular grade did not have access to school uniforms.
