Principal Maghmood’s 300-students dream now a reality

THE new classrooms at Harkerville Primary School are Born in Africa’s latest infrastructural realisation and we couldn't be prouder of them!
Together with a lot of international sponsors and the Rotary Club of Plettenberg Bay, three classrooms were built for this little school that has been growing exponentially over the past few years.
Principal Maghmood started her career at Harkerville Primary 10 years ago with only 79 learners and one dream: to accommodate 300 children at her school one day.
When the 2019 school year kicked off, she burst with pride when welcoming 300 learners at Harkerville Primary - and has been doing every single day!
It goes without say that this massive increase in student count comes with higher infrastructural needs, hence the cooperation of Rotary Plett and Born in Africa to support Harkerville Primary in its pursuit to offer a top-quality education to all its learners. The school has grown in so many ways!
Born in Africa wishes to extend a heartfelt thank you to all sponsors and everyone involved in making this possible, and thus making a big difference for the school and all its learners. Thank you to everyone who attended the official opening on Friday February 1, our chairman Remi De Backer for his inspiring speech, BIA student Tarric Davids, and mentor Sarija.
The children all gave lovely performances, so we thank them along with all the staff and volunteers, and of course DJ for making it an unforgettable afternoon together.
