A gift of gratitude

“Mabogo dinku a thebana” – Tswana proverb

This was the beautiful sentiment expressed today by the acting Head teacher of Legae English Medium School, Dr. F. Moorad, during the gifting ceremony of food hampers to front line workers. The popular proverb means people are meant to help each other.’

The initiation of donating food hampers to front line workers began last year in the peak of the pandemic, and as a sign of gratitude to those who continue to sacrifice their time (and their holiday) to help the nation, the schools continue to extend their appreciation. Legae English Medium School and Legae Academy, in partnership with parents, put together these hampers that were donated to the Botswana Defence Force (BDF), Botswana Police Service, Department of Intelligence Services (DIS), Ministry of Health and Ministry of Labour & Home Affairs.

Representatives from these institutions graced us with their presence to accept these gifts.

From the BDF: Colonel L. Jensen.

From Botswana Police Service: Senior Superintendent Mr Lenos.

From the DIS Mr Puso Setloboko.

From the Ministry of Health: Dr Tidimalo Ookame.

And from the Ministry of Labour & Home Affairs: Acting Deputy Permanent Secretary Ms. C. Davids Okello-Wengi
