Western Cape Premier Helen Zille and MEC of Education Debbie Schafer are continuing to encourage learners to take mathematics and science at schools.

Both Zille and Schafer today visited the Safe Schools Holiday Programme at the Cape Academy for Maths, Science and Technology.

Ministerial Spokesperson Jessica Shelver said the holiday programme at the Academy is designed for learners in grades 10 and 11, covering exciting topics such as Robotics, Aviation and an Introduction to Pilot training

Meanwhile both Zille and Schafer in a combined statement said as a developing country and a relatively young democracy, South Africa desperately needs skills to help our country compete internationally, grow economically and generally improve the lives of all citizens. 

Ministerial Spokesperson Jessica Shelver said the Premier and the MEC believe that a future with more jobs, less inequality, better education and greater freedom to pursue opportunity is a vision that is shared by all South Africans and must be pursued vigorously.

Shelver added that Maths, Science, Engineering and Technology are very important in realising this future.
