Littlewood Primary handover

Littlewood Primary School acting HOD, school principal Maxwell Vries and former pupil Marshal Nelson discuss the importance of giving back.

Former pupil at Littlewood Primary School Marshal Nelson visited the school located in Eastridge, where he grew up, to hand over a R5 000 clothing voucher from a major retailer.

Nelson was rewarded with the voucher after alerting the relevant authorities to the fact that a major retail store in Canal Walk was left abandoned with not a single staffer or security official on duty.

He said he decided to donate the voucher to his alma mater as a way of saying thanks and because he felt the school would put it to better use as there was a desperate need among pupils for school shoes and other necessary items.
