Improved school infrastructure, happy Grade R learners and invested parents is the outcome of a partnership between Shoprite and the Gugulethu community to upgrade a local school.
Luzuko Primary School now boasts two upgraded Grade R classrooms, a fully equipped and renovated school kitchen, as well as a new lick of paint on a building and the jungle gym, done by the school’s parents.

Shoprite partnered with NPO NewKidz, which implemented the changes at the school. In the past the school has been subject to vandalism and theft. The hope is that with the parents’ direct involvement in the renovations such incidences will soon cease.
