Western Cape MEC of Education Donald Grant on Monday visited one of ten schools that will start teaching isiXhosa to Grade 1 pupils as a pilot project. 

Ministerial Spokesperson Bronagh Casey said the WCED has appointed four teachers for the pilot and will appoint a fifth teacher sometime this week. 

This pilot forms part of national experiment to institute the second additional language in Grade 1.

“Many primary schools already offer isiXhosa as a second additional language in grade 4 to 7 however this pilot will look at feasibility of introducing the second additional language in Grade 1, Casey added”.
