Eskom signs pact to boost Maths, Science results in EC

N Ndongeni

The ANC always welcomes initiatives which improve the quality of schooling, particularly performance in mathematics, science and Technology, and therefore commends the signed agreement between Eskom and TRAC SA to extend the coverage of the Eskom Science Enhancement Initiative support programme, from 5 schools to 30 schools. This initiative aims to assist with Science, Mathematics and Technology selected schools for Grade 10 12 in the districts of Libode, Qumbu, Cofimvaba, East London and Uitenhage, in Eastern Cape Schools.

The programme has shown remarkable results within the first year of inception. Over 2 000 leaners and 30 educators from 30 schools have benefited from the programme, and has assisted in improving the pass rate in Maths and Science the province. The ANC believe that the impact of improving the pass rate in Maths and Science will benefit the Eastern Cape and the country as a whole, and is confident that the extension of the programme to the wider Eastern Cape province will open up doors for learners to pursue various careers, thus instilling a sense of hope for a brighter future

I thank you
