Woodlands High School (Completed, 2018)

The SAME Foundation identified Woodlands High School, situated in Mitchells Plain, as the recipient of a new fully equipped Science Lab. Mitchells Plain is believed to be South Africa’s 3rd largest township with a population of over 300 000 people. Woodlands High School has been serving this community for the past 38 years and draws its students from the surrounding areas of Heinz Park, Browns Farm, Klipfontein Mission Station and other surrounding farming areas.

Although the school is a Quintile 5 and the school and charges a small fee, it services an extremely poor community with an unemployment rate of around 40% , and over 70% of the learners come from single parent households. Woodlands High had to remove Physical Science from their curriculum in 2010 as they never had the proper infrastructure or resources to adequately deliver the subject to learners. This is becoming a common problem in our country.

To combat this problem, the Foundation equipped Woodlands High School with a renovated and transformed Physical Science laboratory in 2018. 

Thank you to all that supported this project.
