Eastern Cape MEC for Education Mandla Makupula will on Friday 19 August 2016, hand-over Gwenteshe Primary School in IDutywa, Eastern Cape as part of the Accelerated Schools Infrastructure Development Initiative (ASIDI).
Built at a cost of R 18 Million, the state-of-the-art Primary School will officially be handed over as the ASIDI Programme continues to restore the dignity of rural education.
Through ASIDI, the Department has built and delivered in excess of 160 state of the art schools since programme inception in 2011. Government employs a full team of experts who work to design and deliver schools that give our children state of the art amenities such as science labs, computer labs, nutrition centres, rain water harvesting tanks, decent sanitation, administration blocks with staff room and offices for educators and dedicated Grade R centres that allow us to lay the right foundation for our children to have the best possible chances for success.
Over and above this, the initiative has provided water to 596 schools, sanitation to 414 schools and electricity to 307 schools that previously had none.
Members of the Media are invited to the handover of Mzwixolo Primary School as follows:
