Two new schools opened in CT

CAPE TOWN - Two new schools have been handed over by the provincial Education Department.
Forest Village Leadership Academy and Happy Valley Primary School form part of the Department's collaboration schools pilot programme.
The initiative aims to bring additional skills and innovation into the school system through non-profit partnerships that improve the quality of non-fee schools.
Education MEC Debbie Schäfer attended the official hand over yesterday.
"Both schools have been built to cater to a maximum 1,240 learners each. They do get additional resources. The one school has a psychologist, with the assistance from the partners. They're also looking for social workers and teaching assistants to help alleviate the burden on teachers to give them help in the classrooms."
