School of Information and Communication Technology

The School of ICT is launching an outreach campaign, “The Heart of SICT”. “The Heart of SICT” is aimed at our students who are in need of assistance. It is important to demonstrate our commitment to the values of NMMU. We would like to get as much support as possible and therefore we ask staff and students to participate in the spirit of Ubuntu by donating various items during the course of this campaign.

Please note that this outreach campaign is only for the benefit of students in the School of ICT.

Each month the programme will have a different theme. The theme in June & July is Education, as it was Open Day in our university. All types of stationary are welcomed, for example: Pens, pencils, books, files, pencil case, USB’s etc.  

The stationary drive will be held for the duration of the month of June & July. We ask you to donate any type of stationary to the secretary’s office (Mrs Gwen Kleinhans), R-block room 136. The items can be placed in the box labelled “The Heart of SICT”.The items that are collected will be given to students who need them.

Students who are in need can write their name on the form and place it in the “The Heart of SICT” pigeon hole on the first floor R block (next to the INFO@IT window).

Optionally, email any of the following people:

Karen Church – Karen.Church@mandela.ac.za

Cheryl Schroder – Cheryl.Schroder@mandela.ac.za

Ashleigh Brown - Ashleigh.Brown@mandela.ac.za

To avoid the abuse of the system, you may be requested to write a motivation for receiving assistance.

If you know of someone in need, please do not hesitate to place their name in the “The Heart of SICT “.

In an attempt to provide for the needs of all our students, we also ask that you make suggestions as to the type of assistance that you would like to see form part of this project. We also want you to note that although each month has a different theme, students are more than welcome to ask for help for any other items at any time.  For specific requests please fill in the form or please email Siphe.Mwellie@nmmu.ac.za

Stationary Drive Launch: Friday, 27 May 2016.
