"Minister of Transport and Public Works, Donald Grant said, "This R64 million Kraaifontein High School project included extensive construction work which made use of conventional building materials and methods that remain the most economical, durable, and low-maintenance system of the building. The project also brought with it some noteworthy empowerment opportunities for the benefit of targeted enterprises and local labourers." -Megan Moolman (2018)

We are spending R1.6 billion on infrastructure and R380 million on learner transport." -Debbie Schäfer, Western Cape Education MEC ( This is in hope of making the Western Cape a nurturing environment for new learners and those about to matriculate and go onto tertiary education.
