Christmas comes early for Trubel pupils

Grade R pupils receive a lunch box with a bottle.

While many children anticipate receiving new clothes and fantastic gifts for Christmas, it is always the opposite for those who hail from indigent families.

To bring smiles to the faces of these children, a good Samaritan, Ashley Naidoo and his family from Gauteng treated hundreds of underprivileged pupils of Trubel Primary to gifts and grocery packs on Black Friday.

The day turned out to be a lucky Friday for these pupils. The majority of the pupils at Trubel come from poor areas and through the passionate efforts of teachers, they are occasionally treated to a rare, sumptuous meal.

Principal, Guru Ramcharan, said the past Friday will always be remembered as a special one at the school. All pupils were provided with a brand new school bag for 2018, a lunch box with a juice bottle and the cherry on the top was that every pupil was presented with a grocery pack for Christmas.

Parents who attended were in awe of this kind gesture. SGB chairman, Chantal Govender, said Trubel is known for going the extra mile to make their pupils feel happy and special.

“This gesture has put a broad smile on their faces as well as well as those of their parents. Truly a rare moment for all at Trubel,” she said.  Ramcharan, who had a mammoth task of controlling parents, had his usual smile and was full of praise of the Naidoo family.

He also thanked Bala Moodley of the Chinna Thirupathi Temple in Belvedere for arranging this huge delivery.
“The calibre of Ashley Naidoo and his beautiful family are rare gems. To give so freely, passionately and abundantly is indeed only God given. We remain indebted to them. May God Bless his creations such as them,” said Ramcharan.
