Diepsloot Combined School (Completed, 2018)

The Diepsloot Combined School is a no-fee government school that is situated in the heart of Diepsloot, supporting the education needs of an extremely poor community. The school is the educational home of children from grade 1 – 12.

Learners at Diepsloot Combined School will no longer need to imagine science experiments or face overcrowding issues thanks to SC Johnson & Son investing in a fully equipped state-of-the-art science laboratory. Diepsloot Combined School was chosen as the third recipient of SC Johnson & Son’s Science Laboratory Campaign where each year a top-performing disadvantaged school receives a newly-established and fully equipped science laboratory, giving learners and teachers access to the best possible learning resources. The laboratory was unveiled on Friday 20 April 2018 in partnership with SAME Foundation.

Westcon Comstor Sub-Saharan Africa, a subsidiary of the global WestconGroup Inc Africa has also partnered with The SAME Foundation to renovate, rebuild and fully kit a Computer Applied Teaching Lab for the learners of Diepsloot Combined School. The brand new CAT lab was handed over to the school in an official ceremony at Diepsloot on May, 11th, 2018. The new CAT Lab will afford the children the opportunity to write their computer exams, an education requirement from the Department of Education, at their own school and reach their full potential. In the past these exams had to be written at private schools in the area who were willing to accommodate them.
