Fairhaven pupil’s philanthropy earns him Principal’s Award

Tyrese Naidoo receiving the principal’s award from Mr K Govender.

Head boy of Fairhaven Primary School, Tyrese Naidoo, was the proud recipient of the prestigious Principal’s Award following his wonderful winter drive, recently.

The humble lad, who lost his dad in 2015, has always shown the spirit of Ubuntu at school and in his community. Principal of the school, Mr K Govender, was pleasantly surprised when Tyrese wrote to him asking permission to initiate the Winter Warmth campaign at the school. He said, “Tyrese led by example by purchasing two blankets, from his savings and addressed the pupils about the initiative at the assembly. Due to this appeal and other social media appeals placed by his mum, Ray Naidoo, Tyrese collected over 150 blankets to be distributed to the poor. This will be done shortly and we will be assisted by The Revolution Bike Club.”

Govender also nominated Tyrese for the 100 Mandela’s Competition held by News24. “He is a pupil who always strives for the betterment of others. His caring and compassionate nature is truly admirable. He is a special lad who is going to walk in the footsteps of our great Madiba. I hope other pupils try to emulate Tyrese,”added Govender.  In addition, Tyrese also received a full chicken meal.
