Camps Bay HS
officially opens new
On Friday, 8 February 2019, Head of Department Brian Schreuder officially opened a new classroom development at Camps Bay High School.
The new development includes two new Life Science labs, five new classrooms and an upgrade of the Consumer Studies classroom.
Construction on the project began in February 2018, at an estimated cost of R10.7 million. The funds for the project were raised by the school, using the hiring of their facilities to increase their income revenue.
David De Korte, Camps Bay High School Principal, told WCED News, “We cannot keep up with the demand for space at our school. To meet these demands, these new classrooms and labs are vital to run the school effectively.”
“We also recognise the increased demand for subjects like Consumer Studies, which is of particular interest to our learners as the hospitality industry is a leading source of employment in the Western Cape.”
“The Life Science labs were also in need of an upgrade as they have seen little or no change in the past 50 years and, of course, the additional 5 classrooms are needed to accommodate the increased intake of learners at Camps Bay High School.”
Head of Department of the WCED, Brian Schreuder, said that he was very happy with the school’s initiative to invest SGB funding to extend and so to include more learners. I am also pleased with the rejuvenation of the Consumer Studies facilities, with an emphasis on the WCED’s commitment to focusing on appropriate skills development.”
