Multimillion rand school open in 2020

Foundations, superstructure brickwork and the installation of services are currently underway at the construction site of the R68 million Disa Road Primary School in Altena Road, Strand.

Construction commenced on 8 July last year, following an administration period, according to Byron la Hoe, spokesperson for the provincial transport and public works department.

“The project is due for completion at the end of 2019, allowing the new school building to be occupied early in 2020,” he said, adding that the school will accommodate up to 1 240 learners and will replace the existing Altena Primary School.

The total building area will be approximately 5 600 m² and there will be four Grade R classrooms, 12 foundation phase classrooms, 12 intermediate phase classrooms, four senior phase classrooms, two multi-purpose classrooms, a science laboratory, a multimedia centre, an administration building, a hall as well as ablutions and ancillary functions, La Hoe expalined.

“There was limited space for a sports field, so a ‘kick-about’ field is planned, together with physical training slabs in the school’s courtyards,” he said.

The cost of the project is currently estimated at R68 575 000.

Asked whether there were any delays in the project, La Hoe stated that there had been some community dissatisfaction regarding the appointment of a community liaison officer, but this issue has since been resolved.

He confirmed that during the construction phase approximately 80 people have been employed, including the contractor, sub-contractor and local labourers.

Staff for the school will come from the existing Altena Primary School.

The construction of the school is one of 22 projects under construction by the provincial government.
