Moukangoe School in crisis


The Moukangoe Secondary School pupils’ right to a better education is being violated. These teachers in Ga Motodi village are reportedly doing as they please, others are allegedly coming to school drunk while others are bunking classes. It’s a shame, remarked the parents.
The School Management Team (SMT) along with the members of Sanco have chased away the principal from the school.
“We have decided to chase him away for poor management. He spends his days on sick leaves and teachers are not reporting to class under his
watch.Some are even absconding from classes,” said SGB member Robert Khumalo.
Khumalo said they are awaiting the Bogwasha circuit to appoint his replacement. He said the school is also performing poorly under his watch.
In the 2018 matric results, only 19 pupils passed at the school out of 64 that entered. The paper also discovered that a single pupil passed in grade 10 out of 25 pupils in 2018. Currently, the school has no Life Sciences teacher in both grade 11 and 12 classes. The grade 10s are also without a Physical Science teacher. Some of the teachers have yet to report to class this year.
According to the pupils and parents, some of the educators even report for duty reeking of alcohol.
“Our kids are in a crisis here. Teachers habitually skip classes, there is poor management, and they just go in and out as they please. Our learners are always in classes with no one offering them lessons,” said one of the concerned parents. According to the schoolchildren, there are certain educators who are dedicated to their jobs, while some bunk classes.
Some of the teachers speaking on condition of anonymity said there is a plot by certain members of the SGB to run the school. “We as teachers are targeted here, there are certain meetings held in private places by the SGB with none of the teachers. The reports that we are bunking classes are untrue. The SGB are stepping over the line, some of their complaints are not even on their work description.”
The Limpopo education department’s spokesman, Sam Makondo said they are aware of the school’s problems. “We will investigate the matter in due course”.
