Meet GWF’s OLA Champion: Lesego Lewele

It was on a momentous day that was declared ‘Sports day” for all Mpumalanga primary schools, when a lady came to the Hazyview Digital Learning Campus (HDLC) to inquire about whether the Open Learning Academy (OLA) was in progress on that school free day. The lady was Lesego Lewele’s mother. Lesego is a grade four learner at Ifalethu Primary School.

It was after the sports activities had ended earlier than anticipated on that day, that Lesego phoned and asked his mother to bring him over to OLA.

Lesego’s mother explained to the OLA facilitator, Zodwa Buthelezi, that she had been dragged from work by Lesego, insisting that she drives him to OLA, so that he can carry on with his favourite English App called ‘Sentence Builder’ on tablets.

“On the evening of each day that Lesego would come to OLA, he never stops raving about what he learns here. So today as he was insisting that I drive him here, I also insisted that I personally come to see what is happening in this space that got my son so hooked,” said Lesego’s mother.

Lesego’s eagerness to want to learn also entrigued Zodwa, as she said “I really admire Lesego’s enthusiasm to learn. I understand that he could have taken advantage of the fact that his class wouldn’t come here and go out to play with his friend, but instead he chose this place, just to continue with ‘Sentence Builder’ which he does vey well.”

OLA welcomes every school child who goes out of his way to learn more as there’s always a facilitator available to give a child the chance to learn.

OLA Champ, Lesego Lewele enjoys spending every minute in OLA.
