Premier Winde and Minister Schäfer to visit state-of-the-art robotics class in Mitchells Plain
Today, the Premier of the Western Cape, Alan Winde, and the Provincial Minister of Education, Debbie Schäfer, will be visiting and participating in a robotics and coding class at Spine Road High School in Mitchells Plain.
The school started its robotics programme in 2018 as an extramural activity for learners. In December 2020, the school was approached by DXC.technology to write a proposal for an upgrade of the existing robotics lab. The upgrade was made in February 2021 and the school launched a state-of-the-art robotics lab in April.
Premier Winde will also briefly use the visit as an opportunity to encourage learners to assist elderly members in their family and community with registering for their vaccines.
Date: Today, 24 May 2021
Time: The livestream will begin from 10:00
Location: The event will be livestreamed on Premier Winde’s Facebook page. Please visit: https://www.facebook.com/windealan(link is external)
A note from the Spokesperson: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions to prevent transmission, we are regrettably unable to invite media to join us in person at the school. We do however invite members of the media to join us on the livestream.
