It has now become an established practice that every year BIDPA participates in the Hunhukwe Primary School Prize Giving ceremony as part of its corporate social responsibility activities. The initiative is the brainchild of BIDPA staff, who have volunteered to contribute financially towards the upliftment of the school’s academic performance. The staff’s effort in this regard is supported by the Institute, and we are grateful that this partnership with the school continues to bear fruit. This year’s event was held on the 21st of September, and BIDPA was represented by Dr. Kelesego Mmolainyana, Mr. Keoagile Phoi, Mr. Raymond Lekobane, Ms. Neo Maruping, Mr Kgomotso Ratau and Ms. Kedibonye Sekakela. This was the fifth school performance awards ceremony sponsored by BIDPA. 

The Hunhukwe Primary School management, through the Principal, Mr Marumolo, applauded BIDPA for supporting the performance awards ceremony consistently over the past five years.  He recognised the need to contribute towards education development in remote areas where students’ performance record is generally very low. It also emerged that although the performance of school is still lagging behind, there has been some improvements over the years since BIDPA came on board by way of sponsoring the performance awards. It was reported that the school’s Primary School Leaving Examination pass rate improved from 12% in 2013, to 36% in 2016. Mr. Marumolo expressed commitment and hope for further improvement in the school’s academic performance going forward.
