Fix our Schools - Solidarity Visit Photo Exhibition at Bishopscourt

All are welcome to the Archbishop of Cape Town’s historic residence of Bishopscourt, on 3 and 4 September, to see the ‘Fix Our Schools – Solidarity Visit Exhibition’

These remarkable photographs by Sydelle Willow Smith record the visit to schools in the Eastern Cape made in April by Archbishop Thabo Makgoba, leading a delegation of eminent South African educationalists, human rights specialists, academics and writers, in partnership with Equal Education.

These photographs illustrate the dire need for quality norms and standards to be set, and upheld, for school infrastructure across South Africa – a campaign that Equal Education has led for four years.

In July Equal Education secured a court order compelling the Minister of Basic Education, Angie Motshekga to publish draft Minimum Norms and Standards by 12 September 2013.

The exhibition is open from 10am to 4pm on both 3 and 4 September, at Bishopscourt, 20 Bishopscourt Drive.
