List Of Dinaledi Schools In South Africa

The Dinaledi Schools Project was established in 2005 under the National Strategy for Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, with the aim of improving the marks in and quality of teaching in maths and science. It now has more the 550 participating schools across South Africa. The project is showing positive results in most of its schools, especially in science. In Gauteng, more than half of Dinaledi schools are achieving a pass rate of 70% – 100% in maths and science, while 31% of schools have a pass rate of between 40% and 70%. Maths is still lagging behind somewhat, with only a 3% improvement in pass rates for Dinaledi schools between 2009 and 2011. Obstacles to overcome – List Of Dinaledi Schools In South Africa

One of the major stumbling blocks to achieving better enrolment in maths and science is learner perceptions. Many are afraid of the subjects that are viewed as difficult and a cause of failure.  Motivational sessions are being used to address this.

Teaching skills shortage is also a problem – a bursary programme has been implemented to improve this issue by bringing more maths and science teachers out of college. There is also a focus on improving current teachers’ abilities to teach more difficult concepts.

There are several Dinaledi Schools in South Africa. Below are some of the the schools
