As the first term of school
has come to an end today the Western Cape Department of Education, said it has
increased security at four-hundred and twelve schools identified as high risk
for vandalism and burglary.
MEC Debbie Schafer said this
term the department experienced minor challenges but majority of schools
started teaching and learning on day one of the school year.
Jessica Shelver says we would like to appeal to parents to ensure our learners make
the most of the rest of their school year.
Parents play a key role in
building reading and writing of their children by encouraging them to read during
the holiday and after school hours.
Schafer said that we also urge
community members to be extra vigilant throughout the holiday period and to
immediately report any suspicious behaviour or activities that occur within the
premises of the schools and to report this immediately.
We wish you all a short but well-deserved
break during the April holiday, Schafer added.
