The Western Cape Department of Education says despite measures put in place over the Easter holidays in schools to prevent vandalism and burglary, the department had sixteen incidents lodged of vandalism and burglary.

Ministerial Spokesperson Jessica Shelver says the department was horrified to hear that the hardest hit school was in the metro south district which reported three incidents.

Shelver added that this just goes to show that even having security guards does not act as deterrence to vandals.

Shelver said during the April 2015 holiday period, 412 schools in the Western Cape received additional security, from 24 hours security and 356 schools who received 12 hours security.

“Despite these security measures schools reported a total of 16 incidents of burglary and vandalism. Burglary and vandalism comes not only as a cost to the Education Department but to that of our learners too. The cost of these damages is still being determined.” Shelver said.
