7 November 2011

Tomorrow, Western Cape Education Minister Donald Grant will be doing a site inspection at the new Northpine Technical High School in Brakenfell. The school will be one of 11 new schools to open at the beginning of 2012 and will be one of five technical high schools in the province.

The school will specialise in technical subjects such as mechanical technology, electrical technology and civil technology, as well as engineering, graphics and design.

The minister will be inspecting the new building and will be introduced to the new acting principal of the school to determine how preparations are going in terms of enrolment and the provision of learning materials, equipment and furniture.
