Gauteng Department of Education is to launch Dr Molifi Oliphant Secondary School for Maths, Science & ICT School of Specialisation today, Tuesday, 06th September 2022. The Secondary school is situated in Sedibeng region, Bophelong, Ext 9, Vanderbijlpark, 4893 Thomas Nkosi Street.

“Schools for specialisation seek to address critical skills shortages in prioritised skills areas, particularly Engineering; Commerce and Entrepreneurship; Maths, Science and ICT; Sports; and Performing and Creative Arts. The whole idea behind the School is prioritising the critical skills in areas needed, the motive of the specialisation is to ensures that learners have access to a modern and responsive curriculum which is an alternative to the traditional academic curriculum”.

Furthermore, there seems to be a confusion between the parents of the students who attend this school. There are parents who still do not know what is going to happen to learners who do not want to choose the Maths and Sciences and others still do not know what the launch is all about.
