The Free State Department of Education and Kagiso Trust will hand over infrastructure facilities in nine high schools and one primary school as part of rewarding them for obtaining more than 80% grade 12 pass rate and above 60% on the Annual National Assessment (ANA).
The BNSDP is the partnership between the Free State Department of Education and Kagiso Trust to provide appropriate and state- of- the- art infrastructure for effective learning and teaching.
“It is a partnership that is tacking the challenges in education in an integrated manner and sustaining improvements in the schools system with a major focus on learner performance, and it bears all the hallmarks that have made Kagiso Trust iconic leader in community empowerment” says Free State Education MEC, Tate Makgoe.
The BNSDP programme was first launched in 2007 with nine schools and now expanded to 167 schools in Maluti- a – Phofung local municipality.
