24 August 2022

14 June 2022, Touws River, WESTERN CAPE: Dairy producer Lactalis South Africa (LSA) has donated computers to Touws River Primary School as part of the company’s commitment to making a difference in communities. The computers were donated at a handover ceremony at the school last week and will give a substantial boost to the school’s technology offering.

Speaking at the handover ceremony, Alban Damour, General Manager for Lactalis Southern Africa said; “Technology is an important key to unlocking solutions to fight poverty and unemployment. Through this donation, we hope to give more learners access to a world of possibilities as they plan their future careers.”  

Touws River Primary’s Principal, John Anthony expressed the school’s gratitude. “We are truly grateful for LSA’s generosity. These computers will assist us greatly in enhancing the teaching and learning experience we provide to our learners as they prepare to participate in this ever-changing digital world.”

The event was also attended by Touws River’s Town Manager, Neville Fourie, who thanked LSA for partnering with the school. “On behalf of the community I would like to thank LSA for the donation, we trust this is the beginning of a fruitful partnership between the school and the company,” he said.

The school’s Grade 7 learners had an opportunity to spend the day with 80 members of the company’s senior leadership team where they participated in fun and educational quizzes, as well as career guidance to give them access to information about the corporate world and more specifically the local dairy industry.

Lactalis GM Alban Damour said the computer donation was not a once-off. “This is only the beginning of our partnership and we will do our best to continue supporting the school,” he concluded.
