MEC Makupula continues ASIDI delivery with the Handover of Middle Qutsa Primary School in Tsomo Village, 20 August 2015

Eastern Cape Education MEC Mandla Makupula through the Accelerated Schools Infrastructure Delivery Initiative (ASIDI) of the Department of Basic Education will on Friday 21 August 2015 continue to deliver sustainable change to rural education with the official handover of Middle Qutsa Primary School in Tsomo Village, Eastern Cape.

The school, built at a cost of R 13,9 Million as part of ASIDI, an R8.2-billion programme whose mandate is the eradication of schools built from inappropriate material, in their entirety, and to provide basic services of water, sanitation and electricity to those schools that never had any.


Much more than a story of brick and mortar, ASIDI schools are helping to restore dignity and pride for people who had gone far too long deprived of facilities that are taken for granted elsewhere. The new state of the art facilities are providing an environment that enables optimum learning and teaching.
