2016 SAYNPS Mandela Day at Botlhabelo High School, Oukasie Brits
On Mandela Day, 18 July 2016, Bothabelo High School in Oukasie Township, Brits, North West Province, saw the South African Young Nuclear Professionals Society (SAYNPS) in partnership with Rosatom refurbishing and equipping the science laboratory and talking to the scholars about how nuclear power will benefit all South Africans.
Rosatom has invested over R100 000 in providing the no-fees school with critical laboratory and basic school equipment such as chairs, desks and stationary, needed to carry out the experiments necessary to put in practise the theory of their syllabus. SAYNPS members and staff from Rosatom committed their time by painting and refurbishing the school.
Bothabelo High School was in real need of a facelift. The pupils who live in a poor socio-economic circumstances refuse to let their environment undermine their studies. Last year the school achieved a matric pass rate of 92.86%.
