Media Alert: MEC to Attend the Literacy and Numeracy Roadshow
Since April, officials from the Western Cape Education Department (WCED) have been travelling across the province to discuss the latest literacy and numeracy results of Grade six (6) learners.
The Literacy and Numeracy Roadshow involves a series of meetings with principals, educators, parents and communities to discuss the performance of primary school learners in the 2009 Grade 6 tests, as well as, inform them on how to improve on these results. Providing this information to parents also enables them to hold their schools accountable for their children's performance.
Tomorrow evening Minister Donald Grant will be attending a Roadshow community meeting held at Phoenix Secondary.
Here, schools from some of the Metro Central areas will be present, such as Manenberg, Athlone, Gugulethu, Hanover Park and Landsdowne.
Where: Phoenix Secondary, Silverstream weg, Manenberg
