WESTCODE and partners make a huge contribution to school learners

The beginning of every school year brings some hope and anxiety for many learners and parents, based on the requirements and expectations for the year ahead.

To this effect and in line with their vision “to make a difference” and “to give back”, WESTCODE had its second stationery donation event at Dowling Primary School, on Saturday, February 17.

WESTCODE (Westbury Community Development Initiative) is a community-based initiative with the vision to focus on moral regeneration of the Westbury and surrounding communities, through mentoring, resource investment, and partnerships.



The members of the organisation are Stephen Segeels who is the Chairman, Monty Sandows, Wilfred Leeuw, Frew Benson, Rashied Meyers, Valiant Clapper, Anthony van Louw, Brian Venter, Oliver McDonald, and Patrick MacFarlane.

Thirty Learners from three of the local schools namely: Dowling Primary, Westbury Primary, and Westbury Secondary accompanied by their parents, excitedly received their stationery packs.

“This will surely go some way in making their school year a bit easier, and more successful. The learners were selected based on recommendations from their respective school principals.



“The number of beneficiaries is double that from last year and with additional support and funding, the plan is to increase the number of beneficiaries and hopefully also include more schools,” explained Anthony van Louw.

According to the team, this and other initiatives have been self-funded by the members of WESTCODE, and their hope is to have more funders and sponsors will come on board to assist in this initiative.

The schools were represented by Basil Morgan and Sheldon Maconi, the principal of Westbury Primary School. WESTCODE’s strategic partner “Women of Wisdom” (WOW) funded and prepared the refreshments for the event.
