Edutainer® Comments

We recently visited one of our most successful Edutainers®, at Delft in the Cape townships which is a prime example of what happens when the whole process works properly. A very dedicated girl, operating from a tiny site (the container barely squeezes in).... It feeds on being an evident success, parents want their children to go there and pay the fees."

Nedbank opens edutainer® at Tsunyane Primary in North West

On November 30th 2011, Nedbank celebrated the opening of a new Edutainer® at the Tsunyane primary School in the North West near Rustenberg.


Thulani Sibeko and Kone Gugushe of the Nedbank Foundation cut the ribbon of the Edutainer® pre-school classroom. In addition to the Edutainer®, Nedbank donated mobile library and soccer kits to this outstanding school which started from a garage in 1978 with 1 teacher, and today caters for 328 learners from grade R to grade 6 with the staff compliment of ten and three non-teaching support staff. This delivery was Nedbank's 10th Edutainer®.
