BONUS – RUSTENBURG – On Friday, 23 March 2018, Lonmin officially handed over the New Marikana Primary School to the North West Department of Education and Sport Development and the Marikana community.
The school, a brand new campus, will enrich the community by providing a first rate educational facility. Lonmin’s Social and Labour Plans (SLP) emphasise the need to improve the quality of life for its communities.
The advent of the New Marikana Primary School heralds a new dawn for Marikana’s learners, accommodating up to 750 learners in Grades R to 7.
The new school facilities include a dedicated Grade R learning centre, ablution facilities accommodating learners living with disabilities, a kitchen equipped to provide meals for students, and a 900-seater hall.
“The launch of the school not only ensures better educational opportunities and therefore a brighter future for Marikana’s children, it is also evidence of our dedication to protecting the rights of our people, and bringing them to life,” said Ben Magara, CEO of Lonmin Plc.
