Newton High Pre-Vocational Education school is a school for learners with special needs. They offer learners opportunities to develop various trade skills by exploring their creative and technical abilities. In so doing these learners experience a new found self-worth and confidence to enter the labour market.
This school approached GOTG to help strengthen their hairdressing department. To respond to their call, GOTG donated the following equipment:
- Hair Dryers
- Cutting Capes and Aprons
- Scissors (Cutting and Thinning)
- Combs and Brushes
- Tint Bowls and Tint Brushes
- Rollers and Perm Rods
- Chemical Products (Relaxer, Perm Lotion, Tints)
- Shampoo and Conditioner
- Disposables (Cotton Wool and End Papers)
The hairdressing training department offers various hair treatment to the public as a means to generate income and make it self sufficient whilst also affording their learners maximum opportunity to apply their technical skills. The handover took place on 15 October 2010.
