HC Deb 16 July 1959 vol 609 cc54-5W
Mr. Stonehouse

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations what plans are being made for secondary school improvement as a preparation for university entrance in Swaziland.

Mr. Alport

There are in Swaziland three high schools which prepare Africans for the Matriculation examination of the University of South Africa and three junior secondary schools which prepare students for the Junior Certificate examination. Six primary schools are being developed to junior secondary school status. The High Commissioner is at present formulating plans, whereby with the assistance of colonial development and welfare funds, pupil accommodation at the high schools can be enlarged and the number of junior secondary schools increased.
