Durban – Instead of throwing their old school shoes away, the Woodview Secondary 2018 matric class decided to donate their shoes to pupils less fortunate.

It was an initiative that brought tears to the eyes of teachers and parents this week after the pupils had written their last exam paper of the high school life.

An idea by one the school's top students Clarissa Chetty and her mom came to life on the final day of their Matric exams which saw over 50 pairs of school shoes from the grade 12 learners, leaving a trail from the door of the principal's office all the way towards the exit of the school.

These Shoes will be donated to learners in need.

"The idea of leaving our shoes behind was not only to donating to learners in need but also our way of leaving a legacy. This was our contribution to help the school make a difference in the community. It’s the least we can do for all the effort that was put in this year by the teachers. It really was a good feeling and thank you to all that made it possible," Clarissa said.

Mrs A Mudaly, a teacher who has been at the school since its foundation in 1995 said the idea had the full support of the staff.

"It is something we always try to drive at our school. We want our kids to be the leaders in the making and this group will go on to do great things in the near future. This ‘Trail of Footsteps theme’ was definitely a step in the right direction for all of us," she said.

The schools Principal, Mr VH Mocktar looked on with pride as he watched the kids make this initiative a priority directly after the final paper.

"This was great by the students and I am very proud of them. We hope this is a start of something great for our school. All the very best to them for the results on the 3rd of January 2019," he said
