Up­grade boost for school

The Rep - - NEWS -

Hexagon High School will be able to ac­com­mo­date more pupils from next year, thanks to an in­vest­ment by the Ed­u­ca­tion De­part­ment and the De­vel­op­ment Bank of South Africa.

Pre-fab­ri­cated class­rooms have been erected at the school which has been iden­ti­fied as one of a lim­ited num­ber of “hot spot” schools – schools which are in de­mand – in the Ko­mani dis­trict.

Prin­ci­pal Mal­colm Len­toor said the pupil num­ber was ex­pected to in­crease from 518 to 660 with the class­rooms handed over to the school last week.

Len­toor was thrilled by the de­vel­op­ment at a school which has gained recog­ni­tion for its high aca­demic stan­dards in the past. – Rep re­porter
