KLEINMOND HIGH SCHOOL & COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
"The lack of a proper high school is part of the problem that creates socials ills (drugs, poaching, crime) in the community."
A group of stakeholders, representing all the communities in Kleinmond established the Kleinmond Community Forum to, amongst other things, look at some systemic challenges facing the community. It soon became evident that the lack of a proper high school is part of the problem that creates socials ills (drugs, poaching, crime) in the community. Learners must travel long distances to school which make the temptation to dropout even bigger. After many deliberations with the WCED it became evident that Kleinmond will not get a high school on the short term. The WCED has other major challenges with the current influx of learners. We understand the challenge. So, we embarked on a journey to find alternatives and met with people like Philip Jonker (Jakes Gerwel) and Werner Cloete (Calling Centre) We also mobilised a core group of very skilled and knowledgeable people in Kleinmond to assist us.
To establish a collaboration school in Kleinmond on the existing Mthimkhulu campus, previously used by the Boland College and already zoned for educational purposes. The centre belongs to the "Grail Trust" who is very co-operative and willing to let the premises to us with the goal to establish the school.
