Metro adopts KwaZakhele High School and Booysen's Park High

The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality has taken a proactive role in addressing the challenges facing education in the Metro, says Executive Mayor, Athol Trollip.

"While the responsibility of improving the quality of education lies squarely on the doorstep of the provincial government. However, we cannot fold our arms and watch while things continue to cascade on a downslope," he adds.

"It is in this spirit that we have adopted KwaZakhele High School and Booysen's Park High as a first step towards improving the matric pass rate in the respective schools.

"The fruits of our efforts will then be replicated across the Metro to turn this city into A Centre of Excellence."
