She goes on to add, “All primary, middle & high school kids and parents can learn more about the public & private high schools including special programs, extracurricular activities and admissions criteria. You can find out which high school is most suitable for your child’s future.”
Prospective students will be able to meet with representatives from a wide range of universities, technikons, colleges and other tertiary institutions.
