Media Alert: Official Opening of Province's Third Stem School - Claremont High School
Tomorrow, Western Cape Education Minister Donald Grant and Head of Department Penny Vinjevold, will be officially opening the Western Cape's third STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) facility.
The opening of the Claremont High School is an exciting and innovative development for education in the Western Cape. The school will provide world-class education, especially in Maths and Science to learners from a diversity of backgrounds.
It is also further evidence of the Western Cape government's commitment to expanding the number of STEM schools in the province. Claremont High School will become the third such facility in the Western Cape.
This school is also special in the fact that the WCED have entered into a governance and management with Westerford High School (one of the leading public schools in the country) to support and guide the new school for the first few years. This is to ensure that appropriate standards are met from the outset and to minimise the teething problems associated with many new schools.
