A R100 million project to build a new primary school in Brackenfell and a high school in Kraaifontein should be finished before the end of next year.

Department of Transport and Public Works (DTPW) spokesman Byron la Hoe said work had started on Vredekloof Primary School, in Brackenfell, and Kraaifontein High School and would be completed by August 2018 if all went “to plan”.

The schools will have room for
1 240 and 1 100 pupils, respectively.

Both will have a framed concrete structure with a mixture of face brick and painted infill walls.

Vredekloof Primary will have 28 classrooms, including four Grade R classrooms, three specialised classrooms, two multi-purpose classrooms and a science laboratory.

Kraaifontein High will have 30 classrooms, including three specialist classrooms, two science laboratories, two multi-purpose classrooms, a multi-media centre and computer room.

Both schools will have halls, administrative buildings and sports fields.
