The Western Cape Education
Department has condemned the recent protest action which has taken place at
Imvumelwano Primary School in Kraaifontein in the last two days.
Last month the principal of
the school was dismissed after he was charged with five charges of misconduct
relating to sexual assault and harassment.
Subsequently a disciplinary
hearing found him guilty.
Jessica Shelver said this means that the small group of disgruntled community
members are preventing 1293 learners from receiving an education. Education is
the very basic right that these children need to flourish in order to reach
their full potential in life.
“It is in the interest of all
parties now that teaching and learning continues at this school” Shelver added.
