Port Elizabeth primary school receives transport boost from Isuzu

The learners from Heatherbank Primary School close to Theesecombe, Port Elizabeth, on Monday received a transport boost with the donation of a 60-seater Isuzu bus.

The 108 learners from Grade 1 to Grade 7 are transported daily from Walmer Township and surrounds to school.

 

Principal, Ellen Lovemore, said the bus was very much needed as the old bus they were using had recently broken down.

"We are grateful to have reliable transport to ensure our learners get to class and back home safely every day."

The donation was made possible by Ironman 4the Kids in collaboration with Isuzu Motors South Africa.
