Minister Schäfer to monitor latecomers at Inkwenkwezi Secondary School
Tomorrow, Thursday 16 April 2015, Western Cape Minister of Education, Debbie Schäfer will be monitoring latecomers at Inkwenkwezi Secondary School.
Minister Schäfer received a report from the Metro North District office that there are a large number of serial late-comers at Inkwenkwezi Secondary School. Latecoming is a challenge that many of our schools in the Western Cape face and has a detrimental effect on teaching and learning not only for those who are late, but for those who did arrive on time.
Tomorrow, Minister Schäfer will be waiting outside the school gate to assess the late attendance and to ask learners the reasons behind their latecoming. She will also be engaging with the Principal to determine what processes can be put in place to make both learners and their parents aware of their responsibilities in ensuring time on task.
Date: Thursday 16 April 2015
Time: 07:40 (Bell rings at 07:50)
All media are invited to attend. There will be opportunities for photographs and interviews.
