Maths handbooks and study guides sponsorship to assist schools

Home Manufacturing & Processing Automotive Maths handbooks and study guides sponsorship to assist schools

DAIMLER Truck Southern Africa has sponsored mathematical handbooks and study guides worth R1000,000 to schools in the Eastern Cape and Gauteng.

The sponsorship was divided equally between Ulwazi High School in East London and Phelindaba Maths, Science, and ICT School of Specialisation in Pretoria.

The sponsorship reinforces Daimler Truck Southern Africa’s commitment to actively addressing educational gaps in South Africa.

Ulwazi Highschool in East London has already received its mathematical handbooks and study guides. The third quarter of the school year kicked off on a high note on July 19, 2023, at the Phelindaba Maths, Science, and ICT School of Specialisation in Atteridgeville, when Daimler Truck Southern Africa (DTSA) officially handed-over mathematical handbooks and study guides to grade 8 -12 learners. To further enhance the classroom lessons, educator manuals were also handed over to the teachers. This sponsorship is done under the socio-economic development programme, BEE123 schools capacitation initiative that provides the highest quality, educational material to under-resourced schools in South Africa. The handover comes just in time for learners to adequately prepare for the final examinations of 2023 and marks the beginning of a three-year contract with the schools.

Phelindaba Maths, Science, and ICT School of Specialisation is a no-fee, public high school, specialising in Maths, Science, and ICT. The school currently has 1 526 learners enrolled and apart from government funding, it mostly relies on sponsorships from organisations and corporates like DTSA to uphold quality education for its learners.

“As a school, we often struggle to maintain a high academic level in Mathematics, ICT and Sciences due to a lack of resources, shortage of educators and study material. Trying to overcome these challenges alone had little to no success. We are thankful for Daimler Truck Southern Africa’s sponsorship, and we hope that our teachers and learners not only obtain, but also maintain a high level of Mathematics.=,” says headmaster of the school, Mr Tsotetsi.

“Education is the most important foundation to build a better and brighter future for the youth of South Africa. As DTSA we are passionate about the future generation of this nation and delighted to support the learners in our various communities with the much-needed learning materials. We hope that it will assist the learners to achieve their best results and inspire them to further their studies after school,” said president and group CEO, Daimler Truck Southern Africa, Michael Dietz.

The company wished the learners and teachers the best of luck for the last half of the academic year. “We look forward to great results from Phelindaba Maths, Science, and ICT School of Specialisation and look forward to soon visiting Ulwazi High School.”
