DA urges Kgetjepe to provide mobile classes at Rakgoatha Primary school



The DA called on the MEC for Education in Limpopo, Ishmael Kgetjepe to provide mobile classrooms to Rakgoatha Primary school in Ga-Rakgoatha village around Zebediela under Lepelle Nkumpi Municipality with immediate effect.

The school has three blocks and one was destroyed by a hail storm about three years ago.

The roof was blown off by a heavy storm but the department has failed to fix the roof despite several empty promises by the officials who came to assess the damage.

Over 40 learners are now forced to share one classroom which causes unnecessary overcrowding and makes it impossible for conducive learning and teaching at the school.

“The overcrowding is against the standard norms of learner to educator ratio which is supposed to be 1 teacher: 40 learners.

“Furthermore, adequate resources such as textbooks, desks and chairs were also damaged during the storm which has also contributed towards the shortage of textbooks and chairs at the school.

“‘It is apparent that the department has failed these learners and educators for over three years by not fulfilling its own mandate to provide a conducive environment for learning and teaching at this school which contravenes the learners constitutional rights as enshrined in the Constitution, said DA’s Katlego Phala”

The DA urged MEC Kgetjepe to provide desks, chairs and temporary mobile classrooms whilst initiating plans to fix the damaged block during this festive season.
