Presiding Officers of the Gauteng Provincial Legislatures (GPL) will from Wednesday, 12 January 2022, visit several Gauteng schools as part of the Institution’s School Readiness Programme for the year ahead.
The initiative forms part of GPL’s oversight mandate over the work of the Executive Authority in the Province where Presiding Officers engage with the schools’ management to identify critical areas for speedily intervention by the Executive.
The programme is also used to create awareness on the mandate of the Provincial Legislature and to promote the right to education for children and the role of parents in providing support and strengthening the education system.
Presiding Officers will donate educational support materials to the various identified schools, based on their needs. Furthermore, the generosity of the Chinese Consulate will enable the Speaker and Deputy Speaker to make additional special donations to Siyabonga Secondary School and Kensington High School.
Members of the media are invited to be part of this programme, please see attached. For the full schedule of schools to be visited by Presiding Officers until 25 January 2022, please visit www.gpl.gov.za (https://www.gpl.gov.za/speakers-school-outreach-2022/).
