Centre for the Community School
The Centre for the Community School (CCS) is an entity within the Faculty of Education that aims to promote, strengthen and support the work of community schools in the Eastern Cape.
These are schools that are actively involved in building partnerships with parents, the broader community, and other education stakeholders to support the academic and social development of children and young people.
The Centre subscribes to the principles of “Asset-Based Community Development” and focuses its work around the contexts of schools and the communities they serve.
