After two days of mayhem, things seem to have returned to normal at Fezeka High School.

Teaching and learning was interrupted at the school on Monday and Tuesday as a group of Grade 10 and 11 learners protested against one of their teachers.

The learners allege that the teacher consistently missed classes and would at times come to school reeking of alcohol.

They claimed to have raised their concerns with the school principal on numerous occasions, to no avail. Hence they took to the streets over two days.

They said protest was the only way to vent their frustrations.

With end of the year examinations looming in the horizon, the learners said they were concerned about the impact this would have on their results.

City Vision spoke to three learners, who vented the frustrations at the teacher’s incompetence.

One Grade 11 learner said they wanted the teacher to go.

“We want a new teacher because the one we have does not come to class, (and) as a result we, are failing,” she said.

She said she does not know what she will write on the subject during examinations.

The second one claimed the teacher came to school smelling of alcohol and at times never comes to school at all. “We demand a new teacher.” he said. VTo page 9.
