In responding to the high admission pressure, the Gauteng Department of Education (GDE) together with the Gauteng Department of Infrastructure Development (GDID) recently opened yet another smart school, Mokone Maruping Primary School in Braamfischerville in Soweto.
 
The school named after a celebrated community activist Mokone Maruping is worth more than R90 million and caters for 1 200 learners from Grade R to Grade 7. The school also falls in the mega school category to respond to the demand for space in the areas of the Gauteng province.
 
During the event, MEC Panyaza Lesufi pleaded with the community to take care of the school and keep it clean at all times. “This school will enable our learners to become important players in the economy – they will be producers and not just consumers of products. This is the school of the future, children at this school will be taught how to fix the engine of an airplane,” said the MEC.
 
The school is a modern Information Technology ready facility with a design based on a prototype that incorporates the Department of Education National Schools Infrastructure Norms and Standards.
  The school boasts the following unique facilities and features among others:
-          33 smart classrooms:
o    5 Grade R classrooms,
o    12 Foundation Phase classrooms,
o    12 Intermediate Phase classrooms, and 
o    4 Senior classrooms.
 
-          2 Smart Science laboratories
-          1 Multi-purpose hall
-          1 Computer  Laboratory
-          IT Control Room
-          A Library
-           
According to Kateka Hlungwani, Masna Baloyi and Masva Baloyi, the school came as a huge relief to them.
“We are no longer receiving our lessons from containers- thanks to GDE our school is one of the most beautiful  in the country,” said the elated trio
