MEC for Cultural Affairs and Sport Whitey Jacobs will hand over new sports facilities to three Cape Flats schools before the end March.

Zisukhanya High in Samora and Luzuko Primary in Gugulethu have received upgraded rugby and soccer fields, while Manenberg High school will boast a newly-constructed multi-purpose court.

The multi-purpose court will be used for netball, volleyball, basketball and tennis while the rugby and soccer fields will cater for other athletics codes.

Elandsrivier and Maxonia primary schools in the Overberg region also received newly upgraded multi-purpose courts on Friday 14 March, during a formal function attended by the farming, education and sport community of the region.

After the provision of the new sports fields, Zisukhanyo and Luzuko will be able to use standard facilities for the first time. The facilities will also benefit other schools in the cluster.

The cluster system is a strategic intervention that was introduced three years ago where schools in a particular area or close proximity share facilities.
