Today we are writing a new chapter in Hawston’s history
Joyful emotions ran high in Hawston on Thursday, 10 August, during the official handover ceremony of Hawston Primary School by the Deputy Minister of Basic Education, Enver Surty.
The school was built under the Accelerated Schools Infrastructure Delivery Initiative (ASIDI) of the national Department of Basic Education (DBE) at a cost of R64 million and boast a spacious hall with kitchen facility, woodwork room, computer laboratory, a library and multimedia room, as well as sports fields and an administration block.
This state-of-the-art facility is home to 1 147 learners, of which 120 are in Grade R, who will all receive quality education in a school that they and the community can be proud of.
The DBE remains committed to being the leaders in the delivery of infrastructure and related services that provides a safe and nurturing environment for all learners. To date, the ASIDI programme has completed 181 schools across the country; with the majority situated in the Eastern Cape.
