The situation at the Delportshoop Combined School is calm, as classes have returned to normal following last week’s disruptions.

The situation was tense last week when learners of the Dikgatlong High School protested at the Delportshoop Combined School, demanding teaching.

Their actions were reportedly due to their school not being ready to take them back on boarddue to a lack of facilities.

Parents and teachers decided to close the school on Tuesday, 6 February, to hold a meeting, where they also drafted a petition addressed to the Northern Cape Department of Education.

The department now prides itself on having explored all avenues to resolve the disruptions through community engagements.

The Dikgatlong High School now has a fully implemented Afrikaans curriculum to accommodate the Afrikaans learners, meaning that no learners will need to be transferred from one school to another.

A recovery plan will be immediately implemented to ensure that the learners’ schoolwork is on par and that the disruptions did not negatively affect their academic performance.

A parent, Sophi Lood, expressed her satisfaction.

“We as parents are ready to assist the teachers in catch-up plans to help learners to push their school work,” she said.
