The department of Education plans to merge school


The candidate premier of the Democratic Alliance (DA) in Limpopo, Jacques Smalle together with DA shadow minister of education Nomsa Marchesi visited Senwane Secondary school at GaMolekwa in Bakenburg on 08 January 2019.

This follows after the school receives 0% pass rate and it is one of the three schools that receives 0% pass rate in 2018 matric results. The results were released on the third of January. This means not even a single learner from the school mentioned above has passed a matric.

Despite the 3, 8% improvement matric results in the province; Limpopo is at the bottom, over nine provinces.

It is alleged that the school has four educators who were teaching from grade 8 to grade 12 and it does not have a principal. For that reason Marchesi urged the department of education should ensure that a principal is appointed at school and adequate teachers are appointed as well.

There are allegations that the department plans to merge the school. This is confirmed by one of school management who said discussion to merge the school is still underway.

Smalle said regardless of the challenges school faced Senwane secondary school should not be merged.

School governing body (SGB) members at school suspect that the poor performance condoned by the limited number of teachers. Concerned residents expressed their disappointment at the performance of the school.
