Some Schools Set Up Mobile Classrooms To Prevent Overcrowding

The move to have all learners at school everyday in primary schools across the country has gone smoothly for some but has also revealed issues for others. One solution which is being seen is mobile classrooms.


Kwazulu-Natal saw near to 150 schools damaged by looting activities which took place. Now, as schools reopen, the department has promised mobile classrooms.

Schools in the province which were not affected continued as normal as schools reopened on 26 July. On 2 August, a full capacity return was seen in schools.

The rotational timetable came as a disruption to schools, learners and parents, even though it helped keep everyone safe. Parents were concerned about who would take care of children on days they were home and learning was disrupted.

With mobile classrooms being provided, it helps to make sure learners are not overcrowding classrooms now that all learners are back at primary schools on a daily basis.

Meanwhile, primary school attendance is in full swing in Mpumalanga and learners are being closely monitored by the department officials to ensure that they abide by all Covid-19 safety protocols.

The Education MEC in the province, Bonakele Majuba, admits that the department is attending to overcrowding at some schools.

The return of learners to primary schools comes after a successful vaccination programme for the education sector throughout the county, with more than 517,000 personnel having been inoculated.
