Fanie de Villiers and Gray Security Services 'Adopta school' project

November '99 News

Gray Security Services (North) began a 12 month campaign with Fanie de Villiers to brighten up the classrooms and lives of local learners. Each month a chosen school receives 50 educational wall charts to place in classrooms.

The start of Gray's commitment to the project was at Mahlasedi-Masana Primary School in Mamelodi. Fanie de Villiers was on hand to place his seal of approval on the occasion."We believe education needs should be addressed at a grass roots level. By contributing to the 'Adopt a school' project, learners are exposed to colourful aids from the start of their educational career," said Faan du Toit, MD of Gray Security Services (North).

"What better way to encourage children to learn than to use the wall charts to emphasise important facts during lessons, and to enhance the learning environment as a whole," said du Toit.

Fanie de Villiers committed himself to the 'Adopt a school' project when he saw the lack of educational aids at schools he visited during cricket development workshops.

Fanie was a teacher before his career as a professional cricketer, and education ranks very high on his list of social responsibility projects deserving of support.
