IDC hands over new infrastructure to adopted schools

Share This Post

On 2 October, the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC), Adopt-a-School Foundation and the Gauteng Department of Education handed over a new science laboratory to Moses Maren Mission Technical Secondary School.  This event represented the official handover of all the infrastructure projects completed to date.  In phase 2 of this adoption, 12 facilities have been successfully built and 9 schools have received renovations.  These facilities have included classrooms, science laboratories, ablution facilities and administration blocks.  These projects have created 257 temporary job opportunities and transferred bricklaying, plastering, plumbing and electrical skills to these labourers.  Through the educator development programmes, over 140 science and mathematics educators have received professional development.  In addition, the Foundation has invited many more educators from neighbouring schools to attend these training programmes and in this way has been able to greatly increase the impact of this investment. In phase 1 all of the schools took part in strategic planning, leadership and governance programmes and leadership training was given to the Learner Representative Councils in the schools. Since the programme began in late 2012, the IDC has invested over R27 million in these schools.  In addition to addressing skills development and infrastructure, the IDC has run an internal Women’s Legacy programme to bring sanitation pads to girl learners and is planning an internal career guidance programme for Grade 10 – 12 learners.
