Kingsway School spring sports day

November 2007 News

On 1 September, Kingsway Christian school in Randpark Ridge, joined Johnson Controls Global WorkPlace Solutions and its customers to create a truly memorable Spring Sports Day for the school's children.

The school provides education for 279 underprivileged children from the Zandspruit community near Honeydew. Its Spring Sports Day is a fun-filled day that helps to foster team spirit among groups of children and individuals.

To ensure the day was a success Ronald Nothnagel and Maureen Timmins from Johnson Controls organised the support of staff, supply partners and some of Johnson Controls' corporate clients.

Headmistress at Kingsway Christian School, Angela de Lange, says: "We rely heavily on donations, especially now that we are trying to develop a new school on six acres of land we have acquired adjacent to the Zandspruit informal settlement. In addition, the existing school that accommodates learners from Grade 00 to Grade 7 perpetually requires refurbishment and repairs, not to mention equipment and furniture."

Says Douglas Weinrich, general manager at Johnson Controls Global WorkPlace Solutions, "We support the Kingsway Christian School and place of refuge as we acknowledge the difference an education can make to an underprivileged child. Providing a special Spring Sports Day is a small gesture that we hope has made a difference to the children."
