Western Cape MEC of Education Donald Grant today visited the Esangweni Secondary in Khayelitsha where Grade 12 learners are participating in a Winter School programme in preparation for the 2013 National Senior Certificate Examinations. 

The WCED said the winter school programme will benefit learners from over the 200 high schools in the province.

Ministerial Spokesperson Bronagh Casey said that this year 216 high schools will be participating in the grade 12 winter school program.

“Many of the programmes on offer will be to taught by tutors selected by the WCED and some schools curriculum advises will also be supporting and assisting individual school programmes,” Casey said.

Furthermore Casey said that the department has also arranged for additional resource materials to be developed to compliment the lessons being presented.

Casey also added that the winter programme is complementing existing programmes at the selected high schools in order to improve performance particularly at underperforming schools.

She also said that the WC government has managed to reduce the number of underperforming schools from 85 to 26.
