The TRAC mobile laboratory is an excellent tool used in helping learners to do practical work and teach them skills. I have been to the schools, unannounced, to monitor the programme and it is done in an excellent way. You have an excellent tutor, Pilane Sehole, that knows what he is doing and also how to work with the learners. I hereby request you to include the following schools also in the programme, since they lack the necessary facilities to do practical work with the learners.
