Launch of the Deworming Programme

 

The Northern Cape Department of Education in collaboration with the Department of Health, the Frances Baard District Municipality and the Magareng Municipality launched the Second Deworming Campaign at the Warrenton Public School today.

 

The MEC for Education, Ms Martha Bartlett, accompanied by Executive Mayor Ximba, Local Mayor Mahaleni as well as senior officials from both the Department of Education and Health joined hands to implement a successful programme that will benefit about 150 000 learners across the Province from the 22 August to 27 September.

 

A healthy body cultivates a healthy mind. Through the Integrated School Health Programme of which the Deworming Campaign is a flagship programme off, we will be able to ensure a long and healthy life for all our learners.

 

During the launch, as a collective, we handed over school shoes, school uniform and sanitary towels to deserving learners at the Warrenton Public School.
