Due to the bad conditions of the current school building (it has become unsafe and unstable), the Zeekoegat Primary School Trust is in the process of building a new school for the local community.
The trust was formed by the adjoining landowners of Sarai Ostrich Show Farm / Vanessa Engelbrecht - and Angela Olivier from the farm Welgeluk.
The trust's main aim is to raise funds for the new school project.
