Learners at Goodwood College now have access to a fully equipped Consumer Studies classroom, upgraded by GrandWest’s Social Economic Development department as part of Sun International’s nationwide Schools Renovations Programme. Goodwood College is the forth Cape Town high school to receive an upgraded Consumer Studies classroom as part of the programme in 2016.
The new classroom has been equipped with seven stoves, as well as crockery, cooking utensils and fridges. Industrial tables and cupboards have also been installed, while other improvements were also made, including fixing the ceilings and repainting the classroom. Work at the schools was carried out by an enthusiastic team of GrandWest suppliers and service providers.The Schools Renovation Programme is focused on upgrading hospitality classrooms at schools in underprivileged communities to properly equip learners for pursuing further studies and a career in the hospitality sector.
“This programme provides opportunities for Consumer Studies learners to learn in a conducive and appropriately equipped environment while ultimately helping to create a pool of enthusiastic and employable people for the hospitality sector,” says Heidi Edson, Group Social Economic Development Manager: Sun International.
