Jakes Gerwel School

On May 16th the club visited the site of this new school in Bonnievale –the Jakes Gerwel Entrepreneurskool - named after President Nelson Mandela’s trusted adviser.

This will be a no fee school with a difference -an exciting new venture which could become a model for other new schools in South Africa.

It is a public- private partnership - the Western Cape Education Department is providing 40% of the project cost. www.westerncape.gov.za/gc-news/371/44998. You can visit the school's website here: www.jgeskool.co.za

The remaining 60% will be provided by the local JGE School Funding Trust. Local people have made the project possible: Philip Jonker donated 12 hectares of land, and the architect, land surveyor, engineers and attorneys have all worked pro bono.
