Today, 23rd of January, the Democratic Alliance (DA) Gauteng Shadow MEC for Education, Khume Ramulifho MPL and DA’s Spokeperson for Education, Sergio Dos Santos MPL will conduct an oversight inspection at Slovoville Primary School and Almont Technical High School as part of the DA’s 2023 School Readiness tour.
