Gauteng Premier David Makhura accompanied by MEC for Gauteng education Panyza Lesufi opened a brand new state of the art school in Braamfischerville in Soweto on Wednesday.
The Nomzamo Madikizela Primary school has 33 smart class rooms, a smart library and labs.
Lesufi said that the school has joined an elite group of school that are being opened.
“Gauteng is the best place to study, 1300 learners will be accommodated from the 40 000 still requiring placement and more schools are still to be built to deal with the backlog.
If you want to study here we are saying come we are up to the challenge.”
Eight more new schools for learners with disabilities will be erected just after 18 were built for Autistic learners.
Lesufi thanked the Gauteng Department of Infrastructure MEC Jacob Mamabolo and other officials for their hard work.
“We don’t only need to build new schools, we need to create employment for those that are unemployed.”
Makhura said that they have identified the problem of a proper schooling facility being needed in the area before the community could notify the provincial government.
“The province has a crisis of success and as the they improve the more migrant learners they receive.”
Speaking about the placement problems that the province has recently encountered he said: ” As Premier I am anxious as well but we want to assure parents that we will place learners, we just need their cooperation.
Makhura Assured those on the waiting list in Gauteng that they will soon be placed, emphasising that the province is investing heavily to make sure the schools are the best.
He urged the community members to protect their new school, “We must ask those people who destroy our schools, why do they destroy our future?
“There are many different new types of schools being established like Nomzamo Madikizela Mandela School, If we had the opportunity to attend at schools like this, we would have achieved great things.”
In a message to the learners he told them to come to school on time and stay away from drugs, telling the parents that their children’s education is their responsibility.
