Mobile classes delivered at shack school

MASAKANENG – Mobile classrooms and toilets started their delivery in Masakaneng settlement on Monday 7 February 2022 following an outcry over the conditions learners and teachers at Aquaville Combined School were subjected to.

Tidimalo Cheune, Limpopo Department of Education Spokesperson, said the first two mobile units arrived on site on Monday and the next two were expected to be offloaded on Tuesday. The rest of the seven units would be delivered throughout the week.

“We are aware and very much concerned about the situation at Aquaville in Masakaneng. The school used to occupy buildings on privately owned land and however, we were given notice by the owner as the department to vacate the land and that is why we requested land from the municipality, which was fortunately granted for us to build a school for the community.

We then kick started the processes to relocate the school to the new land. Unfortunately the community moved ahead of us. However, we ordered mobile classrooms and toilets for use by the school while we are still working out details around construction of a new school. Safe to indicate that the school has been added to the district priority list for infrastructure projects,” said Chuene.

The corrugated iron sheet structured school currently accommodates 500 learners with 12 teachers and it caters for grade R up to nine learners.

The parents are appealing to the department to build a proper school for their children as Winter season approaches, provision of more teachers and for the school to be fully operational and cater for Grade R up to Grade 12.

They said the mobile classrooms and toilets’ delivery brought hope that the department was aware of their predicament and that the matter would be addressed.
