The Conundrum of Technical School in Sandbaai

At a Special Council Meeting held on Tuesday, 17 May 2022, Council resolved that the previous Council decision to allow for a technical school in Long Street, Sandbaai be rescinded.

Dr Annelie Rabie indicated that she will approach the Premier of the Western Cape regarding the possibility of moving the school planned on this site, Erf 2825, in Sandbaai to Fisherhaven/Hawston area.

This decision is supported by the fact that a business park development is already under construction in Hawston as well as a need for a similar school for learners from the Hangklip-Kleinmond area.

A technical school in the new area will also thus complement the business park as well as any other future developments in the Hawston area as these businesses will provide an ideal opportunity for in-service training and resultant jobs. Sites in the Fisherhaven area are already zoned for school purposes.

The infrastructure in Sandbaai is already under severe pressure, specifically roads, where peak-hour congestion is a regular occurrence.

Mayor Rabie is of the opinion that it would be more accessible to learners from Hangklip-Kleinmond area should it be situated in Hawston.

The Mayor said that she would suggest to the Premier that they consider using the site in Sandbaai for community health purposes as this a dire need with the growing population in the Greater Hermanus area.
