The EMS Winter School and the Literacy Winter School programmes are aimed at grades 10, 11 and 12 high school pupils from the provinces’ disadvantaged schools in a bid to curb the high dropout rate and assist in ensuring that when pupils reach Grade 12.

This year, the week-long initiative will accommodate 220 pupils from the province’s schools and the programme will offer tuition in English, Mathematics and Accounting.
