A Free State educator took it upon herself to buy school shoes for a few pupils in her class who needed them.

The teacher from Bolekehang Intermediate School, Ms Plaatjies, took to her TikTok account to share a heartwarming video showing the kids wearing their torn old shoes. One learner was wearing the usual sneakers instead of school shoes.

The teacher took the new shoes out of their boxes and placed them in front of each learner. She intended that every child in her class look equal.
