Limpopo department of education still struggle to give learners decent classrooms

The pupils of Matshele Secondary School at Mashoanyaneng village are forced to congregate under trees and roofless classrooms for their lessons. This is due to heavy rains that destroyed their classrooms back in 2014.
Sekhukhune Times saw hundreds of pupils under roofless classrooms with most exposed to the scorching heat. According to the locals, the school has only three blocks. “ Two of them are in a pulsating condition and the other was blown by storms in 2015. Another classroom was set alight by unknowns, also during the year 2015,” said one of the parents at the school.
In 2016, the Limpopo department of education donated four mobile classes. “Our Grade 10s are attending in a damaged class, its without a door and all windows are broken. This affects the pupils during the raining and cold weathers,” the parents added.
According to the learners and teachers, the damage has extended to the toilets. “We are forced to go to the neighbouring homes to relieve ourselves,” they complained.Teachers said it was difficult to teach in such dangerous circumstances.
Spokesman for the department, Sam Makondo encouraged the School’s governing body (SGB) to interact with the department. “We are unaware of the situation. Please write to the department and we will try to remedy the crisis.”
