The shipping line Safmarine has donated two 12 metre shipping containers to the Lehlohonolo Public School from Nyanga East, Gugulethu. The containers will be used as pottery classroom.

The school is excited that they can add this new thing to the school’s curriculum.

"Not only do pottery lessons inspire and enable our learners to create beautiful objects, but they also teach them about the relationship between technology, manufacturing and the economy by providing first-hand experience of the link between the market demand for goods and the skills required to meet that demand," says school principal Maropeng Zantsi.

Safmarine sees the containers as an important part of their contribution to the community. They will donate many second-hand containers for educational projects in communities in South Africa.
