Launch of Olivenhoutbosch Primary School: 08 March 2012
Learning opportunities to learners
The Gauteng Department of Infrastructure Development has appointed the IDT to be the implementing agency for the construction of Olivenhoutbosch Primary School using Alternative Construction Technologies. This follows construction of 10 schools by the IDT in the Eastern Cape in 2011 on behalf of the national Department of Public Works.
The construction work has already begun on the identified site. The finished school will ultimately have 27 classrooms which will house Grade R, the foundation phase, intermediary phase and senior grade 7 block of classrooms, an administration block with the library and computer room, sports facilities, guard house, paved parking and grounds, security fencing and landscaping around the school. The project will provide 110 job opportunities to the community of Olivenhoutbosch.
The works is scheduled to be completed in 4 months time, which is in May 2012. As part of the programme, the IDT has done social facilitation for the community involvement and participation. The launch event will take place on 8 March 2012 and the Premier of the Gauteng Province will officiate the event.
