Construction delays of a new school being built in Knysna have resulted in pupils being accommodated in marquees. 

This is as coastal schools re-opened for the 2013 academic year.   Western Cape Education Department Director of Communications Paddy Attwell said construction delays were caused by additional requirements for consultation and the weather.

Attwell added that the Concordia High School would be ready within three weeks. 

Attwell said further discussions with the minority of Concordia residents delayed construction for this period of about three weeks.

The construction was halted due to the fact that they were unhappy with the site for the school and rain also played a role in the delaying the construction of the building.

Attwell said that the marquees and the over rubberised carpeting are very sturdy, they are well lit; they are waterproof and will compliment the thirteen mobile classrooms already in place for the learners at the school.

The Department has already enrolled more than thousand learners for the new temporary school.

Atwell said the contacts have assured the Department that the remaining fourteen mobile units and the administration building will be completed in three weeks.
