Eastern Cape pupils join science community


Hundreds of children in the Eastern Cape have been given a glimpse into a whole new world of science.

This was made possible by the donation of science laboratories at the Ngangolwandle High School in Lombola Village, Elliotdale and the Thubalethu High School in Fort Beaufort.

The labs will be officially handed over by Deputy Minister of Communications Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams, together with Chairperson of the National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) Kenny Morolong, on Thursday and Friday.

Recently, through strategic partnerships, both schools have been beneficiaries of state-of-the-art IT equipment donations that were championed by the Deputy Minister Ndabeni Abrahams.

The repeat visit provides an opportunity for government to monitor the usage of such equipment and assess the impact it has on improving the quality of teaching and learning in both schools.

Proceedings on both days will run concurrently with the career expo where various government entities will exhibit and share valuable information on available opportunities that young people can tap into.
