The damage to structure was caused by recent strong winds in some corridor of the fiefdom. The department has formerly transferred out brigades to the affected seminaries to advise on the stylish course of action going forward.
The Mpumalanga Department of Education( DoE) said there are some seminaries in the Gert Sibande and Nkangala sections that were damaged by the strong winds on August 26.
According to the DoE’s prophet, Jasper Zwane, these include but aren’t limited to Elusindisweni Primary School, Mphanama Secondary academy, Izimbali Boarding School, Nganana Secondary academy, Violet Jiyane Secondary academy, Kaduma Primary School and Magotshwa Secondary academy.
On August 28, Zwane said the damages aren’t affecting the trial examinations that are under way. “ A platoon of department officers is visiting the affected seminaries to assess the damage and to advise on the way to be accepted.
The seminaries have made necessary arrangements and the damages aren’t to the entire structure, so there are still classrooms for Grade 12 learners to write examinations and space for other learners to continue with their assignments. The department will work with the academy governing bodies to insure the safety of learners and staff and to make sure that literacy and tutoring aren’t oppressively affected. ”
Zwane said the damage to structure poses a challenge considering the huge structure backlog that the fiefdom formerly has.
“ The department will give regular updates on the developments and the cause of action to be accepted. ”
