- Another school has been vandalised while learners are at home due to renewed school closures over Covid-19
- Rekgothile Primary School in Orange Farm has been vandalised and Panyaza Lesufi posted images of the damage
- South Africans were outraged at the destruction, the learners have enough to deal with and damaged schools place more pressure on them to catch up
With the renewed closure of schools, attacks have also returned with another school being the target of vandals. The needless destruction of the facility will undoubtedly impact the learners when they return.
This is a critical issue as learners have a lot of catching up to do to make up for the lost time.
Briefly.co.za learned that Panyaza Lesufi posted images of the latest school attack and South Africans have reacted.
"So unfortunate that the closure of schools bring this misery in our sector. Rekgothile Primary School in Orange Farm."
Here are the reactions:
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that President Cyril Ramaphosa has once again held one of his 'family meetings' with South Africa on Thursday evening.
Ramaphosa announced that all public schools will be closed for the next four weeks, something he says is the international practice in the face of high infection rates.
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that a school in Makoko community, a slum area in upper Africa, has given out radios to its pupils to learn from home amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
The proprietor of Whanyinnah Nursery and Primary School, Noah Shemede, said the radios will be used by the pupils to follow up on educational programmes organised by the state government.
