A local mom, Amogelang Atlegang Phiri, recently shared how a teacher at Lewisham Primary School helped her realise that her son, who had been diagnosed with a brain cyst at birth, needed to go to a special school.
In the post, the mom explains that the teacher had made arrangements for the child to be transferred to a West Rand school for children who had disabilities and also helped the little one understand why he was repeating the grade.
"It's good to get support and have the courage to support my son...when I gave birth to him he had a stroke. He was diagnosed with a brain cyst, he turned 7 in November. His right hand and leg are not working properly.
"I want to take this opportunity to thank his previous grade 1 teacher from Lewisham Primary School who helped transfer him to West Rand school of disability. He has accepted he is going to start his Grade 1 there as he was struggling with some activities.
"Some teachers are not just there to teach their parents too. #Iamstaying," wrote the grateful mom.

In similar heartwarming YEN.com.gh news, times are tough and many frontline workers are feeling the full effect of Covid-19. A young South African nurse, Naomi April, recently took to Facebook's ImStaying group to share how an unknown man's generosity had helped lift her spirit.
"Today I had my ImStaying moment. I am a registered nurse and decided to do a bit of shopping after work at Checkers. Whilst there a gentleman who works at Afrocentric offered to pay for my groceries.
"I'm still shocked and overwhelmed by his generosity. Lately, as a nurse working on the frontline, we feel unappreciated when you see family and friends going about their business as if Covid doesn't exist," she wrote.
