THE Education Department has confirmed that classes have been suspended at Isilokomane primary at Dwengu in Mid-Illovo as 19 pupils are attending classes.

Many pupils did not return after the holidays. Ilanga newspaper reported that problems started when the principal started missing school after finding a new home. Soon, teachers also started staying away, Ilanga said.

However, the allegations were not confirmed by the department or the area’s induna, Qhubabantu Ngcongo.

Department spokeswoman Mbali Thusi said they will hold a meeting with teachers and parents on Sunday.

The remaining pupils will be moved to a nearby school and the teachers redeployed, while the school governing body looks after the school buildings.
