Media Alert: Minister Grant to Attend the Opening of the New COSAT School Premises
Tomorrow, Minister Donald Grant will be attending the official opening ceremony of the new Centre of Science and Technology (COSAT) school premises in Khayelitsha.
COSAT is one of the province's best performing schools and is one of three STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) facilities in the Western Cape.
The school was previously housed at False Bay College and has now been moved to newly renovated premises, with new and improved facilities such as a media centre, four computer labs, a mathematics subject room, two physical science labs, two chemistry labs and a technology room.
The new premises have also allowed the school to enrol more learners this year. For the first time, Grade 8 learners have been enrolled and learner numbers at the school increased from 194 to 278 in 2011. In 2014, enrolment numbers are expected to increase to around 500 learners.
This is an exciting development for a school that we are all so proud of and will expand opportunities for learners in the Khayelitsha area.
