Activities included a tour of the completed facilities, the donation of the Sports Pavilion to the community represented by Chief Mandela, and tree planting by VIPs and community members. The children of Mvezo also had the opportunity to engage in science experiments and computer lessons and to talk about their educational aspirations that will be made possible by the school.
