Dagbreek catches a new ride
At this joyous occasion, the Dagbreek principal, Paul du Plessis received the bus from the Afrikaanse Privaatskool principal, Des van Heerden. They were joined by Madri Frewer and Dixon Norval of FNB, and the WAP CEO, Arno van Wyk.
The Windhoek Afrikaanse Privaatskool (WAP) was looking for a new owner for one of its older buses. Working together on this special project, FNB Namibia and WAP decided to pool resources and turn the bus into a gift for Dagbreed.
Paul du Plessis thanked the two institutions for their continued assistance towards the school and for their willingness to support those less fortunate and less able. “We are blessed to enjoy the on-going support of the private sector and in particular that of other schools such as Windhoek Afrikaanse Privaatskool and then of course FNB Namibia – our sincere thanks to both institutions.”
Corporate Communications Manager at FNB Namibia, Vicky Muranda said FNB has a long history with Dagbreek and when possible the bank assists the school. “We all know that running and maintaining a school is no easy task and Dagbreek is not an ordinary school. They are a special school and we believe that they also have special needs for them and the many special children they look after. We are proud to assist and look forward to seeing the bus around, transporting the children safe and sound.”
Des van Heerden of WAP said: “WAP became aware of the need of transport for Dagbreek students as not all pupils have access to transport. Some have to walk to school despite their disability which really makes it hard for the pupils. WAP and FNB are proud of the donation of this bus and WAP wishes to thank FNB Namibia as well as Willie Thom of Namibia Graphic supplies.”
Dagbreek is also supported by Agra for their small crop growing project on the banks of the Klein Windhoek River.
