Tongaat Secondary acknowledges ICASA donation

Eric Rangappa, Aru Govender, Mr RH Singh and Mr and Mrs K Govender, hold the special plaque.

Tongaat Secondary School hosted a plaque unveiling ceremony in appreciation of the R26, 000 donated toward the school’s wall project.

Aru Govender, formerly of Plane Street, Tongaat, interacted with Eric Rangappa of Verulam in securing the sponsorship.

The funds were raised at a silver jubilee celebration by pioneer members of the Indian Cultural Advancement Society Australia Incorporated, namely Dr K Rajendran from India and Aru Govender of South Africa, now both Australian citizens.

Govender, a former pupil of Tongaat Secondary, travelled from Australia to attend the function. The plaque will be displayed in the foyer of the school’s office building.

It must be acknowledged that the donation was made with the full support and blessings of the president, Brindha Pillay, treasurer, Loga Pillay and members of ICASA.

Govender also donated a further R500 on behalf of his son, Jayseelan Govender, who was placed in the top 10 in the 1978 Senior Certificate Examination at the school.

Principal, RH Singh, said, “It is heartening to see ex-pupils give back to their Alma Mater irrespective of age or in which part of the world they live. Sincere appreciation to all our  former pupils.”
