Education: building opportunities


(where noted, documents indicated as "pdf" are in Acrobat format

The Western Cape Education Department responds to changing needs by building schools, replacing and expanding existing schools, merging schools and closing schools where better alternatives are available.

Our aim is always to improve opportunities for learners.
