Johannesburg - The ANC Youth League in Gauteng wants to ask Education MEC Barbara Creecy how it can help school pupils falling behind during the strike by public servants.

"While we understand their grievances and sympathise with them, we are concerned about the negative effect of the strike on learners," ANCYL Gauteng chairperson Lebogang Maile said in a statement.

It would also ask for an urgent meeting with Education MEC Barbara Creecy to see what it could do to minimise the impact of the strike and would talk to student representative bodies for their input.

Earlier, Creecy delivered thousands of newspaper study aids to pupils in Alexandra and more were expected to be delivered to others soon.

The ANCYL Gauteng said ideas so far included mobilising unemployed graduates to work with parents, community leaders and school governing bodies to help the pupils with their studies.

It condemned the violence and intimidation during the strike, and said police should act against the perpetrators.

"We urge all parties concerned to negotiate in good faith and find an amicable settlement to the impasse," said Maile.
