The North West Department of Education confirms the resumption of teaching and learning in Morokweng Primary School in Morokweng Village near Ganyesa after a four week of no schooling. This is due to an outcry by parents who complained about the conditions of the school.

Classes resumed on Wednesday, 11 August 2022 with a recovery plan in place to cover the lost classroom time.

Since the beginning of the third quarter on the 19 July 2022, learners could not return to school because parents wanted a new school.

The school has received 20 mobile classrooms to mitigate the challenging school environment. Two more will be delivered as soon as they arrive to be 22 in number.

MEC Mmaphefo Matsemela is thankful to the Morokweng school community for patience during this time.

“We are thankful to the school community of Morokweng Primary school for their patience during this time. Indeed, our learners deserve better, safe, and dignified space for learning.
Currently processes are unfolding for building of a new school. In terms of lost teaching and learning time, extra classes are being administered to meet the lost time”, said Matsemela.

The school will not close for spring break so as to catch up and conclude the syllabus.
