Media advisory: School readiness visits

27 July 2021

Today, 27 July 2021, Western Cape Education Minister, Debbie Schäfer, visited three Cape Town schools to assess readiness for the third term.

The schools visited were:

  • Injongo Primary School (C Section, Khayelitsha)
  • Joe Slovo High School (Khaya, Khayelitsha)
  • Intshayelelo Primary School (Ilitha Park, Khayelitsha)

Minister Schäfer said:

“There are some schools that have been affected by the taxi disruptions, which is highly regrettable given the amount of time that has been lost by schools. But I am really impressed with the work that is being done here by our principals – they are creative, they are committed, and they really are doing their very best to try and ensure that the learners have the best opportunity for a quality education. They often are dealing with difficult circumstances, but they are working on relationships with communities to protect their schools. The SGBs are really getting involved. I look forward to seeing how their learners progress in their futures because they are getting an excellent start.”
