A TWO THOUSAND-STUDENT facility, located within the renowned Sibaya Coastal Precinct, is scheduled to open in 2020.

Tongaat Hulett has signed a landmark deal with education group ADvTECH to develop a new school in the  region, a first in more than 14 years.

The project is expected to provide relief for the growing demand in the region for quality schooling. The facility will be developed under the ADvTECH Academies brand, which provides education to a broad range of income earners.

Sithembiso Mthembu, Head of Development Execution for Tongaat Hulett Developments said the school is being developed in Node 5 of the 1 000 hectare Sibaya Coastal Precinct, on which construction of civil infrastructure commenced last year.

The first phase of this project is expected to be completed later this year, with plans to build some 10 000 residential units by the time the entire project is completed.

Nodes 1 and 5, located on the east side of the M4 motorway, are the priority focus areas.

Mthembu said Sibaya’s big attraction is its convenient location between facilities like King Shaka International Airport and major centres such as uMhlanga and Ballito and it was exactly this that appealed to the education group.
