Alcohol awareness at Botshabelo school


Ntemoseng High School in G-section, Botshabelo, was abuzz with activities last week Wednesday during the “A better tomorrow starts today campaign”, hosted by the Association for Alcohol Responsibility and Education.
It was a fun-filled day with a dancing competition for learners and soccer freestylers to show off their skills.
The aim of the Association for Alcohol Responsibility and Education is to educate the youth about the dangers of using alcohol at a very young age and to encourage them to focus on their school work. Nyakallo Leine, a celebrated radio presenter of Lesedi FM better known as Ba2cada, says young people should focus on their school work because talent and education go hand in hand.
“I would like to encourage young people of Mangaung to choose their friends wisely as good friends will never let you make the wrong choices.”
He also told matriculants from the Class of 2018 that they should know that they have the power to give their school a good name by producing excellent results.
“Everyone is different, so don’t study something you are not passionate about.”
Joseph Maphisa, deputy principal at Ntemoseng High School, told Voice it is an honour to host this event at his school.
“This is a very good initiative to educate the learners about alcohol abuse and we are grateful for the visit of Nyakallo Leine at our school. The learners can relate to what he says. He shows that it is not where you come from but where you’re going.
“We thank the Association for Alcohol Responsibility and Education for motivating our learners and showing them the dangers of alcohol abuse at a young age. Our wish is for this partnership to grow strong.”
