Diepsloot Mall recently donated lap desks to scholars at Diepsloot Secondary School 3 and Diepsloot Primary School 4.

Lap desks are light and durable, and provide a solution for school children who don’t have desks. The desk sits on the child’s lap, providing them with a surface to write on, whether they are sitting on a chair or on the floor. As the desks are portable, the child is able to take the desk home to provide them with a surface to do their homework on.

The Diepsloot Mall Lap Desk Project was launched in 2015, and to date over 2 300 lap desks have been donated to scholars in the local community.
