DA MPL Edmund van Vuuren on a recent schools visit to Cofimvaba District

On my recent oversight visit to the Cofimvaba District I was met with numerous challenges faced by the schools in this area. These include a shortage of transport for learners, a lack of special schools in the Cofimvaba District and a huge shortage of hostels for learners.

Such oversight visits take place to ensure that the Education Department delivers on its mandate and matters which need addressing are brought to its attention.

Part of my responsibility as a member of the education portfolio committee and on behalf of the DA, is to furthermore ensure that provisions such as school supplies, learner/teacher support material and adequate staffing at schools is met.
