Learning and teaching have been disrupted at the Sizuzile Primary School in Tsakane, Ekurhuleni, by angry parents. There has been no learning and teaching at this school for at least a month.

The parents are unhappy because it is alleged that a tender has been awarded for the school to be replaced with a brick-and-mortar structure, but there is no work to show that the contractor was appointed.


Some of the mobile classrooms are a safety hazard as the floorboards are uneven, and there are no proper steps leading into the classrooms. The mobile classrooms are unstable and posing a danger to learners.

In addition, some classrooms have been vandalised. Windows have been broken and cannot be used for learning and teaching.


It is unacceptable that these classrooms have been vandalised simply because the Gauteng Provincial Government, under the leadership of Premier Panyaza Lesufi, has failed to ensure that proper plans have been put in place so that construction work can begin.

The DA will be submitting written questions to the Gauteng MEC for Education, Matome Chiloane and the MEC for Infrastructure Development, Lebogang Maile, to determine when construction work will begin and what contingency plans will be put in place to ensure that learning and teaching are not disrupted during the construction of the new school.

All our children deserve to be taught in an environment that is conducive to learning and teaching. However, we also urge parents not to take matters into their own hands and damage the current infrastructure that is in place.
