ABSTRACT
The article informs that barristers at 1 Pump Court have raised funds to help build a pre-school in South Africa's Eastern Cape. In March, two members of the chambers, Melanie Johnson and Adrienne Barnett, drove from East London, England to seven miles outside Mthatha in the district of Libode to pay a visit. The legal starting age for school was seven years and from this point, primary education was provided free by the state, although children under seven living in more affluent communities would typically attend fee-paying pre-schools. Bucking the trend, some 10 years ago, the community of Mzimkhulu, led by Lorraine "Mama" Poswa, started a pre-school for under-sevens.
