It has been alleged that a number of factors have negatively impacted the performance of Limpopo, a Wholesale village school known as Khudugane Secondary School.

It has been reported that the school's performance has dropped and some parents aren’t optimistic about the pass rate of the cohort of learners that are currently in matric this year.

The matric pass rate for the class of 2021 declined to 55%, whereas in 2020 the school pass rate had been 81%.

A learner in matric has complained about the overcrowding in classrooms and the improper infrastructure of the school.

It is for this reason that parents feel that these issues ought to be addressed at the Limpopo government's Education Indaba, which has been scheduled to take place in Polokwane on 17 March 2022.

In a SABC interview, Mpho Lephale who has a child in this school urged:

Firstly, we need some classes. Secondly, they need to hire more teachers, so that our children get enough education.

Maria Chuse, who is also a parent, added that she is worried that learners won’t perform well even this year because the school has continued using rotational timetabling.

A member of the School Governing Body (SGB), Navela Ngobeni shared that one block of the school had been built by the community and the other by the government.

The SGB is also hopeful that the Education Indaba will find ways to source funds for the school's infrastructure.
