High school maths and science
Some 50% of the high schools in the Western Cape no longer offer maths and science as matric subjects – and this proportion is increasing each year.
We recognise the important role of these subjects in education and, in 2019, we are running a pilot project for maths and science teachers across all four high schools, with a view to equipping them with subject knowledge and up-to-date teaching methods.
In addition, we will provide tutoring for maths and science learners. The aim is to help them to improve their marks throughout their schooling, and to boost the final year pass rate so that learners have more opportunities for further studies and gainful employment.
