Basic education deputy minister Dr Reginah Mhaule has expressed concern that the recent storms which affected at least 190 KwaZulu-Natal schools posed a threat to teaching and learning.

“There are 11 of those schools and we made an instruction for the schools not to open until the water subsides,” said Mhaule.The minister’s visit comes as schools in uMkhambathini were forced to close because of a legal dispute involving the traditional authority.

“We are going to allow the law to take its course. We are engaging the security cluster together with co-operative governance department to come closer and try to resolve the issue. This cannot be resolved by education,” said Mhaule.She said she felt encouraged by the number of pupils on the streets making their way to school.

Coastal schools open for 2022The 2022 academic year kicks off on Wednesday for coastal schools.

1 day ago “There are 11 of those schools and we made an instruction for the schools not to open until the water subsides,” said Mhaule.This is according to the affidavit of a 2021 matric pupil, Anle Spies, in an application to the Pretoria High Court.by..

The minister’s visit comes as schools in uMkhambathini were forced to close because of a legal dispute involving the traditional authority. “We are going to allow the law to take its course. In her application, Spies was joined by advocacy group AfriForum and Maroela Media, an online media platform. We are engaging the security cluster together with co-operative governance department to come closer and try to resolve the issue. This cannot be resolved by education,” said Mhaule. On Tuesday morning, Judge Anthony Millar ruled that the matric results be published in newspapers and other platforms. She said she felt encouraged by the number of pupils on the streets making their way to school.

“When we got to Imbali, teachers were all ready to teach and this means that a trend has been set for the whole year,” she said. READ:  Matric results: The end of an era In her affidavit, Spies – who was a matric pupil at Gereformeerde Gekombineerde Skool Dirk Postma in Pretoria but has since relocated to Gqeberha in the Eastern Cape, where she will be based until she moves to Bloemfontein to study agriculture at the University of the Free State – said there would only be a week from the date of the matric results announcement to the day she has to be in Bloemfontein for university orientation and therefore it is important for her to know her results as soon as possible. Mshengu weighed in on the issue of placements.  At Georgetown’s entrance, many anxious parents had camped out in a bid to get their children enrolled. Therefore Spies hoped to access her results in a newspaper or an online media platform. “We are dealing with two categories. One category was recorded by us last year and has seen the number declining. “…No one knows my examination number unless I disclose my number to a third party at my own choice.

Yesterday, fewer than 600 pupils were yet to be placed. Conversely, there are parents who wake up and have not applied or in some cases applied to one school only,” said Mshengu. Not even my parents know what my examination number is unless I give it [to] them, which I intend doing if they are interested in checking my examination results in a newspaper,” she said. .
